The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission is proud to announce the release of Equal Opportunity in Golf, a practical guide to preventing unlawful discrimination and harassment in Australia’s golf clubs.

Earlier this year, one of our staff spoke at Better Together, the largest LGBTI+ conference in Australia since the 1980s, about why trans and gender diverse inclusion in sport matters.

Each year on International Women's Day, the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission expresses our profound concern about sexual harassment in Victoria's workplaces. This year, at least, the issue needs no introduction. Day after day, sexual misconduct scandals have consumed our front pages. This is progress. But I'm here to press for more.

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission is marking International Women's Day with a call to action for Victoria's employers.

In response to today's media stories, Commissioner Kristen Hilton said:

Sexual harassment complaints on the rise

The Commission has seen an increase in enquiries and complaints regarding sexual harassment, particularly from young women. This may well be a result of continued media attention on the issue prompting women to speak up and contact us.

A new initiative to improve work, study and business opportunities for Victorians with a disability is welcomed by the Commission.
