This free one-hour panel discusses the new legislation on preventing workplace sexual harassment and sex discrimination, and taking an intersectional approach to ensure workplaces are safe, fair, and equal for all.

This session will explore the new legislation requiring a positive duty on employers to prevent workplace sexual harassment, sex discrimination and victimization. It will also explore taking an intersectional approach in preventing gender-based harassment and discrimination so that workplaces are safe, fair and equal for all.
