Have you experienced: 

  • Disrespectful behaviour from students in the classroom that may be gender-based?
  • Harassment, or inappropriate and unwelcome behaviours from colleagues that may be sexualised?

Join us online 1-2pm Friday 24 November to hear from a panel of experts in employment law and workers' rights in relation to gender-based harassment, including sexual harassment, bullying and other unwelcome workplace behaviour.

Our panel will discuss your rights as a worker, the law in relation to gender-based harassment at work, and mechanisms for responding to it. Academic staff on the panel will also provide some practical tips to prevent and address harassment in the moment e.g. in the classroom.

Our panel of experts includes: 

  • Dr Sharlene Leroy-Dyer, NTEU UQ Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Committee Representative and Senior Lecturer, UQ Business School
  • Georgia May, Senior Employment Lawyer at Caxton Legal Centre
  • Ellie Dalton, Solicitor at Working Women Queensland. 

All university staff are welcome to attend this event. We particularly encourage casual tutors, research assistants, HDRs, and otherwise early career academics, to attend this event.
