Trigger warning – please be aware that this event will include descriptions of childhood grooming and sexual assault.

Grace Tame was awarded Australian of the Year for 2021 for her advocacy for survivors of sexual assault.  She has since used her platform to relentlessly campaign further for measures to prevent sexual assault, abuse and harassment. In a special keynote address to unionists she will tell her story, outline actions that can be taken and answer questions.

This event is not to be missed.
