Driving a culture of respect
At Optometry Australia we believe that respect is fundamental to people’s lives and success. Respect begins within oneself and comes from a place of recognising that all people deserve dignity and worthiness. It is our goal to foster and maintain a culture of respect within our profession that makes the workplace better, and safer, for everyone.
To that end, we have developed a new campaign for our profession that can be applied within any of our workplaces based on the theme: Respect. Always! These two powerful words proclaim that any form of bias, harassment or aggression will not be tolerated within optometry.
The campaign will form the basis for how we want to approach all work-related relationships, including owner-to-employee, employee-to-employee, employee-to-patients, visitors and so on.
To fulfil the campaign’s purpose, we will be continually populating this page with downloadable resources that you can use in your workplace. These resources are designed to help guide decision-makers within optometry on how to handle issues of bias, harassment and discrimination as they arise.
