The Respectful Relationship Working Group was a former sub-committee of the IDEA Governance Framework. For updates on current work, please visit the Student Safety and Wellbeing Committee page.
The Respectful Relationship Working Group was established under the University's IDEA Oversight Committee as part of the IDEA Governance Framework.
The Respectful Relationships Working Group (RRWG) succeeded the Respectful Relationships Steering Group (disestablished on 28 February 2019) as the University working group that informed the continued development of whole of university policy and strategies aimed at both staff and students to address sexism, sexual assault and sexual harassment on campus as well as other behaviours that are disrespectful and damaging. This included support and advocacy for the University's progress against the recommendations of the Australian Human Rights Commission report Change the Course, as reported to the AHRC in February 2019 by the University. Its work was conducted within the framework of the University's Sexual Violence Prevention Strategy and Action Plan.
The Respectful Relationships Working Group replaced the Respectful Relationships Advisory Group (2019) and revised terms of reference reflected the progress in the University's work since 2018 and the establishment of the Respectful Relationships Unit (RRU) in January 2019.
