At EEO Specialists we believe that most people don’t mean to offend, but they sometimes do because they don’t realise that what they just said or did was inappropriate. We want to minimise the impact of workplace problems by showing employees what to think about before they tell the funny but sexually inappropriate joke or before they play a trick on someone as “a joke”. We enable people to think about their behaviours, not from their own perspective but from everyone else’s perspective. We like to do this by customising the workshops to your organisation, creating scenarios of things that ‘could happen’ at your workplace so people go away feeling like the information made sense to them.

Researchers found gender abuse and harassment was rife in Victorian councils, with 23 percent of women councillors “very often” experiencing negative behaviour that affected them personally, compared to 3 percent of male colleagues.

PM Convenes First Women’s Cabinet Meeting Prime Minister Scott Morrison brought together senior colleagues this week at the first meeting of the new cabinet women’s task force.
