Research consistently reveals that sexual harassment occurs in all industries and sectors – including our court system and legal profession. This needs to change.
Everybody has the right to be safe and feel safe at work.
This independent Review, led by Dr Helen Szoke AO, will identify ways to build a culture that prevents sexual harassment, calls it out if it occurs, and create safe environments where people have the confidence to speak up without fear of reprisal. Hear Dr Szoke talk about the Review.
Established by the Victorian Government and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria, the Review covers all Victorian courts and VCAT.
The Review will consider measures to prevent sexual harassment, and improve accountability across the state’s courts and VCAT. Submissions are open until 30 October 2020.
