Last year, journalist Tracey Spicer asked Australians working in the media to contact her with their #MeToo stories. The responses she received – more than 1600 – came from all around Australia, across industries and backgrounds. Many of them expressed the shame and fear that kept them from speaking out earlier.
This movement has brought to light horrifying levels of both harassment and retaliation for speaking up. For too long, those with power have chosen to protect workplace abusers and silence those who tried to stop them.
This changes NOW.
Spearheaded by Tracey Spicer AM, NOW is a non-profit, non-partisan organisation for people across all industries who have been sexually harassed, assaulted or intimidated.
NOW will help these people understand their rights and options, and support them if they wish to tell their story. The fund we're building will connect them with counselling and legal services, including our growing network of lawyers around Australia.
Join us for this members only event for a conversation with Tracey Spicer to hear more about NOW and its aims to address harassment and assault. Tracey will speak following our short AGM when we will welcome the nominated 2018/2019 Executive Committee.
Thank you to Deloitte for hosting this event.
