In March 2020, Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins launched Respect@Work, the Australian Human Rights Commission’s report of the National Inquiry into Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces 2020.

The report is the culmination of the world-first 18-month National Inquiry, which examined the nature and prevalence of sexual harassment in Australian workplaces, the drivers of this harassment and measures to address and prevent it.

Through its 55 recommendations, the report proposes a new approach for government, employers and the community to better prevent and respond to sexual harassment in the workplace.

This webinar is a part of a targeted series the HRC is coordinating with different stakeholders to socialise the report and build momentum towards its implementation.

During this webinar our host and panel will:

  • Outline the report’s findings and recommendations as they relate to boards
  • Consider the board’s responsibility and accountability in preventing and managing workplace sexual harassment.
  • Discuss ways in which boards can work to prevent sexual harassment


  • Kate Jenkins GAICD, Sex Discrimination Commissioner
  • Diane Smith-Gander AO FAICD, Chair, Zip Co Limited
  • Dr David Cooke GAICD, Director ESG Advisory
