Sex Discrimination Commissioner ‘isn’t optimistic’ about upcoming survey results
Australia’s Sex Discrimination Commissioner says she isn’t expecting good news when the latest survey into workplace harassment is made public.
But Kate Jenkins hopes it shows victims have grown in confidence to speak up.
The last report, in 2012, revealed one-in-four women had been harassed at work in the last five years and 20 per cent of those were not confident enough to make a complaint.
“I’m not optimistic that our results will be an improvement on 2012, but I am optimistic that the conversations we’re having are beginning to say sexual harassment isn’t OK and we’re going to change,” she said on 3AW Mornings.
She also shared her thoughts on the allegations surrounding Don Burke.
