Are You Ready To Deal With Sexual Discrimination At Your Workplace?

In the wake of the Weinstein sexual abuse allegations and the #MeToo phenomenon, sexual harassment has become a hot topic of discussion in the Australian workplace. How quickly we all become experts on what is and what is not sexual harassment. Yes, everybody has an opinion and everybody has a story. But does anybody have a solution?


The unfortunate reality is that 1 in 3 women have experienced sexual harassment in Australian workplaces. It’s been that way for years. Yet one might say that it takes high profile celebrities and media attention to get this on the agenda of the executive. But it is there now. Perhaps it will start to get the attention that it deserves!


1 in 3 women have experienced sexual harassment in Australian workplaces. A mentor of mine once suggested that we should forget about the elephants and watch out for the fleas. Very wise words that apply to many situations in our personal and professional lives. Including sexual harassment!


Perhaps the solution sits in each of us. Perhaps our focus should start with us fleas rather than the elephants. Perhaps sexual harassment is not going to go away any time real soon. Perhaps we can all play a small part in reducing a 1 in 3 figure, to a 1 in 4, to a 1 in 6, to a 1 in 10, to a 1 in 100. Might there be a time when we look back and say, can you believe that humans used to treat each other like that in the workplace? I’d like to think there is a chance and I challenge you to play a part in making that a reality!
