SUMMIT PROGRAM & PRESENTERS
Join us for a Summit program that will engage you, challenge you and motivate you to bring about real and lasting change in your workplace.
The Not In My Workplace Sydney Summit will be opened by Australia's Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Kate Jenkins, as she shares insights from the groundbreaking National Inquiry into Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces.
The opening address will be followed by a series of enlightening presentations, panels and Q&As from some of Australia's most eminent leaders across a range of industries and areas of expertise; including*:
Sydney Peace Prize recipient, Author and Broadcaster Tracey Spicer AM - on the impact of the #MeToo movement in Australia and the need for greater action to protect and empower sexual harassment survivors
Former Australian Military leader and Commander of Australian Defence College, Major General Simone Wilkie AO (Retd) - on the massive cultural-change project undertaken to tackle incidents of sexual assault at the Australian Defence College
Board and Culture Expert, Managing Partner at BoardsGlobal Andrea Durrant - on the key principles any organisation must implement to drive positive culture and prevent sexual harassment in their workplace
Governance Institute of Australia CEO, Megan Motto - on the responsibilities of boards and shareholders, and tools for driving better outcomes through good governance
Leading Employment Lawyer, Partner at Johnson Winter and Slattery, Ruveni Kelleher - on the legal ramifications of inaction, or the wrong action
Sessions will look at the challenges both large and small businesses face, and how they are bringing about change. Topics such as taking action, tools for change and the importance of board governance will also be discussed.
The audience will have the chance to ask questions of our keynote presenters in our live Q&A session.
You’ll also hear about the forthcoming initiatives Not in My Workplace has in the pipeline during our ‘fireside chat' with some of the founding members.
The detailed program will be released later this month. We encourage you to register now to secure your place for this informative Summit that will enable you to bring about change in your workplace – making sexual harassment everyone’s business.
