The problem of sexual exploitation is enormous.
But at the same time, new opportunities to take back ground are emerging as societies around the globe recognise that what is needed to beat this insidious form of exploitation is a proactive, co-ordinated, multi-agency approach.
Now, more than ever, the growing movement to end sexual exploitation needs to work together to establish a new norm – a world free of all forms of exploitation.
At the summit, leaders from this movement, along with special guest speakers, will equip, encourage and inspire those who gather. And together, we will harness the combined power that unity brings and achieve real change for human dignity and justice in our State and Federal governments.
The Summit will expose the seamless connection between sexual exploitation in the following areas:
- Objectification in advertising
- Sex Trafficking / Prostitution
- Child Sexual Exploitation
Connecting the exploitation agenda will result in concrete recommendations for change that will bring freedom. We will be given current research and have the opportunity to strategise and network with leaders from other States and organisations.
This conference will explore a range of issues in relation to sexual exploitation. We acknowledge that the topics discussed over the course of the conference may conflict with individually held values or cause distress. Participants are encouraged to approach conference organisers for counselling resources and referrals should they wish to access these services.
