Event Background: 
The impacts of sexual harassment can be profound and lasting. It is estimated that approximately 1 in 5 Australian women have experienced sexual harassment in their workplace in the past 5 years and that up to 50% of incidents go unreported. 59% of employees experiencing sexual harassment will suffer from long term consequences, including stress, anxiety and negative mental health outcomes. The costs for business of poor mental health in a workplace are significant in terms of absenteeism and loss of productivity. Damage extends also to staff morale, community attitudes and commercial reputation.

Date & time Wednesday 4th of December 2019 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Location Sovereign Hill (Time and Space Theatre)
Venue Bradshaw St, Golden Point

Individual Registration $40.00 (inc. GST)
