Young Women’s Workplace Rights Project: Survey

Young Women’s Workplace Rights Project- consortium through Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission: The VEOHRC are currently developing a project to raise awareness amongst young women about discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace. VEOHRC will be developing tools for young women and for employers outlining their rights and responsibilities.

This project is in response to research and consultation conducted by the VEOHRC, that identified that there was a real need to focus a project on ‘young women in the workplace.’  Young women were identified as a group that were particularly vulnerable to discrimination, yet they were also one of the groups that were least likely to be aware of their workplace rights and to seek help to resolve discrimination at work.

The first step of the project is a survey for young women under 30. The information gathered from this survey will inform the development of the tools.  If you are interested in particpating in this survey or know young women who might be please see the information and links below:
