Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) thanks the Racing Integrity Commissioner for his and his team’s work on preparing this Report.
It is a call to action for all racing codes to continue and strengthen our efforts to foster a culture where physical and sexual abuse, assault and harassment are not tolerated.
In the context of the greyhound racing industry, this Report will assist GRV to focus on areas relevant to the risks to people involved in our sport, and will help us work with our key stakeholders to ensure a safe and supportive culture across the entire racing industry.
It took great courage for survivors to come forward and share their stories with the Racing Integrity Commissioner, and we thank them for doing so.
While the industry cannot undo the past, we can prevent future harm by making sure we have robust systems in place to report and stop egregious conduct and to foster workplaces with a zero-tolerance approach to unacceptable behaviour.
