We are a group of senior executive leaders who have come together to address the issue of workplace harassment and abuse across all industries.
Our Commitment is to
Grow the network of leaders committed to ensuring that sexual harassment is ‘not in my workplace’
Ensure that sexual harassment does not occur in workplaces we lead
Ensure the organisational risk register contains sexual harassment as a strategic risk and that controls are in place to address this risk
Ensure our code of conduct explicitly calls out sexual harassment as an unacceptable behaviour
Provide training for all staff in socially appropriate behaviours
Support colleagues and young women who are the target of predatory behaviour
Protect the reputation of women who speak out
Provide expert opinion and commentary.
We do this because everyone deserves to feel safe at work. And we can make that a reality.
We recognise that:
Many have come before us. It is their work that enabled us to be leaders in the workplace today.
As leaders we have a responsibility to act, lead and create cultures of respect and dignity.
We work with leaders and organisations to identify areas of risk and to bring about change, we need to have constructive, honest conversations about culture.
We need to hold onto strength and optimism to make a difference. Change requires an impactful, positive, action agenda that draws on our strengths.
Sexual harassment is part of violence against women and we will support the work of others in the field.
The majority of men are good and honest, our target is poor behaviour by a few.
We are powerful when we stand together.
There are many female champions and role models who have visibility.
We are diverse with deep experience and reach.
