Real Stories Lead to Real Change - Eliminating Harassment in Mining
For too long in Australia, the status quo around workplace bullying and sexual harassment/assault has been lacking. “We need to be switching away from the reactive mode where we’re dealing with things in the aftermath. Instead, we need to move into that proactive mode where we’re identifying and controlling risk.”
This quote from the AHRC’s Respect@Work Inquiry report encapsulates the entire report. The reactive model of relying on individuals to make a complaint of sexual harassment has truly failed (and continues to do so).
“A systemic culture of bullying, unacceptably high levels of sexism and sexual harassment plaguing employees” – revelations from a Report into Workplace Culture at mining Corporation Rio Tinto.
Rio Tinto are now showing a commitment to transparency and appear to be taking action to strengthen their culture and eliminate bullying & harassment.
