This guide highlights the powerful strategies engaged in by activists and survivors—some of them profiled here—and the steps YOU can take, both in and out of your workplace to end sexual harassment in the world of work.
Our friends at Blue Seat Studios created a short video about the #CheckYourWorkplace movement. Take a look!
Check out this feature from our friends at ThinkProgress to see where we’ve been and where we still need to go to end sexual harassment and assault on the job once and for all.
Join the movement to end workplace sexual harassment and assault once and for all!
While improved training, changing policies & firing harassers are great first steps to stop workplace sexual harassment, it’s time to take the next step.
You have to change the culture.
Futures Without Violence has joined forces with partner organizations to provide workers across the U.S. with the strategies and tools they need to drive change and create the kind of workplace where everyone has equal opportunity, access & respect.
In order to know where to go, you need to know where you’re starting.
Our first call to action is to conduct a Culture Walk, using a workplace assessment tool we modified, to help identify gaps in equity, respect, and safety which may fuel sexual harassment in the workplace.
