The KIP Project’s Training Workshops
In addition to a two-day interdisciplinary conference around discrimination and sexual harassment on March 31 and April 1, 2017, the KIP Project has also aimed to push for the generation and dissemination of related knowledge through two training days. One training day targeted students, while the other will target HR staff of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME)s.
As part of the post-conference activities of the conference, the KIP project invited students to a full day student-oriented training workshop on April 8, 2017 addressing Sexual Harassment in Society and Spaces. Students from across faculties and disciplines and various universities attended one or all of the four back-to-back sessions covering issues related to conceptions of masculinities, consent and rape culture, sexual harassment in the workplace, and online harassment.
The KIP Project held a training workshop on the implementation of internal policies addressing sexual harassment in Lebanese small and medium enterprises (SME)s. The training day took place on June 10th and invited senior HR staff in Lebanese SMEs to learn about the drafting of anti-sexual harassment policies within their internal policies and procedures.
