Is there psychological safety for your team to bring forward concerns in your workplace? Are your staff using your reporting structures for safeguarding concerns? How is sexual harassment handled in your office? How were previous cases of harassment, bullying, or abuse handled?
Sexual abuse and sexual harassment in an organisation can be the outward evidence of toxicity within the organisational culture. Research tells us that patterns of communication which involve jokes or sexual comments, hierarchical models of leadership, and levels of access to reporting structures can all lead to higher incidence rates of sexual violence within an organisation.
In this workshop we will look at issues such as power imbalances, cross cultural working, communication, internal systems, and organisational values that contribute to the level of safety in an organisation’s culture. The purpose of this short workshop is to give you strategies for increasing organisational safety in order to prevent, prepare, and appropriately respond to sexual harassment or sexual violence.
Through a recent and regional case study, participants will learn how to identify organisational drivers that allow sexual abuse and sexual harassment to go unchecked.
Participants will discuss research-based evidence of practices commonly used to promote a culture of safety within an organisation.
Participants will develop an action plan for adapting these safe practices within their organisations.
