As a part of the conference program 19th of September, Centre for gender and equality will present the project "Sexual harassment in the healthcare sector" and the main findings from the research.
Description of the parallel session:
NORDIC COOPERATION ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT: EXPERIENCES FROM THE NORDIC GENDER EQUALITY FUND
Speakers: 3-6 project leaders from joint Nordic projects on sexual harassment, funded by the Nordic Gender Equality Fund
The Nordic Gender Equality Fund supports cooperation within the Nordic-Baltic region on projects relating to gender equality. Several Nordic cooperation projects have advanced practical collaboration between authorities, non-governmental organisations and employer and employee organisations on the issue of sexual harassment. The projects include youth-driven prevention of sexual harassment and violence, as well as research-based knowledge as a tool against sexual harassment and bullying among children and youth. Other projects focus on sexual harassment in the workplace within the health sector and employer-driven prevention of sexual harassment in the hotel and restaurant sector. This workshop will offer an insight into some of the Nordic cooperation projects with a discussion of the benefits and challenges of Nordic cooperation on sexual harassment and how it can contribute to change.
