Eliminating Sexual Harassment in the Legal Profession

Australia has one of the highest reported rates of sexual harassment in the world and almost 30% of lawyers have been harassed at work*.

Earn 1.5 CPD points from this webinar PLUS access resources for an additional 7.5 CPD points before March 31st and help eliminate sexual harassment in the legal profession.


About this Webinar

Sexual harassment is commonplace - 1 in 3 Australian workers had experienced sexual harassment in the last 5 years in 2018**, this has increased from 1 in 5 in 2012. Fewer than 1 in 5 people (17%) make a complaint.

This is why we are supporting Neon Shed and helping to promote their CPD training for legal professionals focused on eliminating sexual harassment.

A harassment free workplace is truly being more human.

  • What you can do if you witness sexual harassment at work
  • What you can do as a manager

A little about NICOLE

Chief Courage Officer | Neon Shed | Workplace Communications Expert

I’ve been in communications for over 17 years and in the work health and safety industry for a decade. I’ve seen the damage the dark side of work can do so this year I’m on a mission to bring light to these issues to improve psychological safety, mental health and well-being in the workplace.

My goal is to inspire real change and give people the tools and courage to say not in my workplace and have the flow on effect of not in my country, not in my community and not in my home.

You will receive a zoom link one week prior to the event.


Everyone benefits from a safe, mentally healthy work environment.

Everyone has the right to a physical and psychologically safe workplace.
