Although it was mainly online, I was able to join few speakers in the studio to moderate the Respect@Work summit organised by Not In My Workplace in June.

It was a brilliant example of women (from across the political spectrum) standing together to push for much needed action to address workplace sexual harassment. We were all agreed that much more can and must be done to keep the momentum going and makes sure the recommendations of the Respect@Work report are applied.

Thanks to Julia Banks, Grace Tame, Yemi Penn, Tanya Plibersek, Janelle Weissman, Sally Moyle, Pru Goward, Skye Saunders, Rita Butera, Shelley Roberts and Craig Drummond.

Particular thanks to Anne Jameson and Dr Jenny Gray for organising the event.
