The independent Review, led by Dr Helen Szoke AO, has been established by the Victorian Government and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria. It will address how our courts can better support people who experience sexual harassment, increase reporting and accountability in these workplaces, and prevent future occurrences.
In our role as research partner, the Commission is now gathering stories from individuals who have experienced or witnessed sexual harassment in a Victorian court or tribunal.
You do not have to be a lawyer to share your story, the Review is open to anyone who has information or experience of sexual harassment in Victoria’s court system. You may have an administrative role, be a social worker or child protection officer, or be someone who attends a court or the tribunal for any other reason. You may have previously been employed within Court Services Victoria.
All information received will be treated confidentially and will be de-identified before being shared with the Review or published. Find out more about our role and read our FAQs.
