19 The General Orders and Guidelines will be consolidated and distributed to assist and guide Public Sector organisations in the development of appropriate policies and procedures for implementation early in 1988. In addition to the work done on the General Orders and Guidelines, the Director conducted seminars in Alice Springs and Darwin on sexual harassment in the work place. The Department of Education was particularly active in this regard recognising its responsibilities for providing education services which incorporate equal opportunity for all students and staff. Community Education The year was an active one for community education. There was a marked increase in requests from Government Departments, Educational Institutions, Clubs and Associations for information and assistance and for staff to attend and address meetings and seminars on equal opportunity principles. The followxng list gives an indication of seminars/workshops conducted during the year.
