To ensure that everyone in Australia experiences a safe, fair and dignified workplace that is free of sexual harassment and related retaliation.


At NOW Australia, we believe that the key to eliminating sexual harassment from Australian workplaces involves three interrelated steps:

  1. Better prevention
  2. Stronger regulation
  3. More effective support.


We partner with leading advocates for equality and safety to:

  • Prevent sexual harassment and related retaliation in Australian workplaces
  • Lobby for stronger regulation of sexual harassment
  • Ensure that people who experience workplace sexual harassment receive adequate assistance and support.


We seek to develop an organisational a culture that reflects our objectives.


We respect the stories of the people who have experienced sexual harassment and are committed to giving them a voice in our work.

We also respect the long-standing work of the gendered violence sector, community legal sector and pro bono legal sector in assisting people experiencing sexual harassment.


We understand that some people (especially people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders (ATSI), LGBTI+ and people with disabilities and young people) experience higher rates of sexual harassment than the general community.


We are committed to working with those people and groups across the country who share our vision because we understand that we are one part of a much broader effort to end violence, especially gendered violence, in Australia.


Our work will be grounded in evidence (local and international), subject to critical evaluation and will contribute to a growing understanding of the drivers behind sexual harassment.


We will be accountable to our funders and partners, as well as the organisations, communities and individuals with whom we work.
