Rio Tinto report reveals culture of sexual harassment, bullying and racism

The report, covering a five-year period and based on a survey answered by about 10,000 Rio Tinto employees, shows that almost 30% of women and 7% of men said they had been sexually harassed at work. Of those people, 21 female workers also reported cases of actual or attempted rape or sexual assault.
Nearly half of all employees who responded to an external review of the miner’s workplace culture commissioned by Rio said they had been bullied, the report released Tuesday revealed.
Racism was a “significant challenge” for employees at many locations. People working in a foreign country experienced high rates of racism while nearly 40% of men who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander in Australia had experienced racism.
