Among the driving force of executive leaders behind the Not In My Workplace (NIMW) initiative, Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) Chief Executive Officer Karen Bolinger is calling on leaders in the business events sector to take critical action to stamp out sexual harassment in the workplace.
The inaugural NIMW Summit being held on 21 February 2019 will draw together an allegiance of influential government, senior executives and dynamic thinkers to address the issues of workplace harassment and abuse across all industries.
Sexual harassment cases continue to increase in Australia, with the 4th National Inquiry on Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces highlighting one in three Australian workers have been sexually harassed at work over the last five years.
The world’s largest network of Business Events Strategists, PCMA has also released new findings revealing 80 percent of respondents had experienced some form of on-the-job sexual harassment. Concerningly, it also found nearly 75 percent of those event professionals didn’t report the problem.
