#MeToo was a defining global zeitgeist exposing sexual harassment in the workplace. Fast-forward three years and many Australian workplaces still appear to be struggling to implement and enforce meaningful policies and processes to prevent or reduce the risk of abuses of power and inappropriate behaviour towards staff, particularly women.

The profound impact of sexual harassment on the employee personally, the staff's wellbeing and safety more broadly, and the organisations’ reputation and bottom-line, firmly establish the need for change.
