Interest high in sexual harassment prevention

Media Release

14 November 2000

Interest high in sexual harassment prevention campaign

The Human Rights Commission received an unprecedented number of enquiries about sexual harassment in response to its Sexual Harassment Prevention Week campaign, which ran from 16 – 21 October.
During and after the campaign week, enquiries to the Commission’s InfoLine more than doubled, website activity increased by over 60 per cent and the number of requests for sexual harassment prevention training reached 60.
Lana Hart, Women’s Advocate and Project Manager for the campaign, said she was pleased with the level of interest.
“The public response level to the campaign was high and came from many quarters”.
“For a first-time initiative, it generated much discussion, media coverage and enquiries. The campaign is also helping the Commission to establish strategic relationships with key groups who will work towards eliminating sexual harassment in all organisations.”
Nearly 200 information packs have been sent to groups that seek to develop a sexual harassment prevention programme within their organisations. The packs are free and are sent on request.
A national network of sexual harassment prevention trainers was established for the campaign. Approximately 60 requests for the two-hour training workshop have been received so far.
Jan Eggleton, co-ordinator of the Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Network said trainers were delighted to see sexual harassment prevention training being provided to dozens of groups around the country.
“Our workshops are a fun and educational first step at keeping sexual harassment out of any organisation.”
