How can investors engage with companies to prevent and address human rights abuses? RIAA's Human Rights Working Group is an initiative to support members in their stewardship responsibilities respecting human rights in their business operations and their portfolio of companies.

The Human Rights Working Group is a way for RIAA members to come together in the interests of building stronger stewardship capabilities through more deeply understanding human rights, being able to identify and comment on due diligence processes and understand investor and company roles in remedying human rights abuses and violations.

Building on the last working group meeting of 2023, working group members will now have the opportunity to hear from speakers to understand more about regulatory changes in relation to labour rights and the workplace. In December 2022, a new positive duty to eradicate instances of sex discrimination and harassment within the workplace was introduced through the Anti-Discrimination and Human Rights Legislation Amendment (Respect at Work) Act 2022 (Cth) (the Act), an amendment to the Sex Discrimination Act 1984. What steps can investors take to respond to these changes?

Hear from the Australian Human Rights Commission, Samantha Ramsay (Senior Lawyer, Positive Duty, Compliance & Enforcement Team) and Dr Meredith Nash (Director - Sexual Harassment & Gendered Violence and is KPMG's national lead for Respect@Work).
