About this project

The Australian Human Rights Commission has launched Speaking from Experience, landmark project that centres the voices of people with lived experience in workplace sexual harassment reform.

Sexual harassment is still unacceptably prevalent in Australian workplaces, with one in three people having experienced workplace sexual harassment in Australia in the last five years.

Speaking from Experience invites people who have been sexually harassed at work to have their say about what they think needs to change to make workplaces safer. The information gathered will help create resources that will help workers and employers know how to make workplaces safer for everyone, as well as inform future law reform priorities.

Through a user-friendly web portal hosted on the Commission website, people who have been sexually harassed at work can submit written or audio submissions outlining their recommendations on what needs to change to address workplace sexual harassment.

Participation in the project is voluntary and open to all individuals in Australia.
