Research by the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) shows 48% of women working in media have experienced intimidation, abuse or sexual harassment in the workplace and this troubling statistic hasn't changed much over the last two decades.

As community radio stations, we must contribute to an inclusive and cohesive Australian community - both within our stations for staff and volunteers and outside for our listeners and communities. Join this webinar to get effective and actionable processes you can implement at your station now to build a safer space.

In this webinar you will learn:
  • What sexual harassment is and how it can be prevented
  • Your station’s obligations under relevant laws
  • What your station can do to minimise potential harm
