Good jobs are for everyone

The Queensland Government is supporting industry-led action to build safe and inclusive workplaces with the let's protect respect campaign.

The campaign empowers industries to take positive action to embrace gender equality and ensure sexism and unfair treatment has no place in the workplace.

With a focus on male-dominated industries, as identified in a 2022 Queensland Training Ombudsman review, the campaign supports industries to drive cultural change from within, and to open up to diversity and the many benefits that inclusive, adaptive workforces offer.

At the same time, targeted information and advice is promoted for apprentices, trainees and their employers, so they know what to do and where to turn if they need support, with information and advice from our Apprenticeships Info service.

You can take action to protect respect.
