Boys’ Club’ culture, sexual assault, harassment and bullying examined in MediaWorks report

A senior MediaWorks employee engaged in sexual activity with a teenager at a promotional event after she’d been served drinks all evening and became "heavily intoxicated", a wide-ranging review into the company says.

No staff at the 2019 event intervened and the young woman said she was left with "serious psychological harm", a report by Maria Dew QC found.

Dew today released an executive summary of findings in her independent workplace conduct review after speaking with 100 current MediaWorks staff, 25 former staff and the young female who was a guest at the 2019 promo event.
