Raise it! Conversations about sexual harassment and workplace equality
Raise it! was a pilot project we developed and delivered to support and equip Victorian workers to have safe conversations about these important issues at work. The pilot was funded by the Victorian Office for Women.
By providing a holistic program incorporating preparation, education and conversation starter toolkits to help catalyse these conversations in a safe way, this pilot project evaluated how conversations addressing causes and consequences of sexual harassment and discrimination can help prevent these from occurring.
The Raise it! project also aimed to build stronger pathways and knowledge for addressing sexual harassment and discrimination when it occurred.
