About the event
This online peer learning forum will discuss what sexual harassment is, why it remains so prevalent and what employers can do to tackle it and create an inclusive culture. Best practice examples and recommendations will be shared. Delegates will then have group discussions under Chatham House rules.

This event is free to BITC members with a Wellbeing partnership.

Sexual harassment represents a high cost for both victims and business but many employers seem unable to address it. Indeed, 96% of organisations have bullying and harassment policies in place but four in five women do not report it to their employer (source: TUC). This shows that having policies in place is simply not good enough, a more supportive workplace culture is also needed.
