Awareness Against Harassment Series

Workplace harassment has different manifestations, all of which are destructive and contribute to a hostile work environment. Discussing this subject within your organization may feel uncomfortable or even difficult. 

But we believe that sparking change starts with being aware of what’s wrong and what you can do to address it. Hence, raising awareness is an important part of eliminating harassment. Even if it is perceived that there is nothing wrong with the status quo, being knowledgeable about what could go wrong is the first step toward preventing it.

This series of informative pages were created to educate the public about various types of workplace harassment, how employers can prevent or address it, and what employees can do when it happens.
