Leadership Outlook Series: Creating a Safe and Respectful Workplace – Adelaide



date & time

18/03/2019 - 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

The Institute of Managers and Leaders Australia and New Zealand has partnered with White Ribbon to present Leadership Outlook 2019: Creating a safe and respectful workplace, a national series of practical and thought-provoking workshops that tackle gendered violence as a workplace issue.

Our Leadership Outlook events will define and identify violence and contributing factors, provide strategies to support staff experiencing violence, and help attendees to learn to mitigate risk. The workshops will also cover bullying, harassment and intimidation and how managers and leaders can support teams affected. During each of our sessions, a panel of local leaders will also share their real-world experiences in creating safe and respectful workplaces.

Each Leadership Outlook session will:

·        Provide a forum for employers to learn about best practice approaches to create a safe and supportive workplace for employees who are experiencing domestic violence, bullying or harassment in or out of the workplace

·        Increase your knowledge and skills in applying a strategic, evidence-based methodology to create a safe and respectful workplace drawn from White Ribbon’s work with organisations on the Workplace Accreditation Program

·        Outline strategies that can be implemented to support staff which minimises risk and promotes a supportive culture within the workplace

·        Provide overview of resources and tools available to assist in creating a safe and respectful workplace

·        Offer a practical case study to work through key learnings from the sessions

We all deserve to feel safe. Join us for an event that will help transform workplaces, leadership and society.

Registrations commence at 11.30am with a light lunch and networking. The session will start at 12.00pm.
