On June 10th, 2017, the KIP Project, in partnership with the Office of the Minister of State for Women’s Affairs, the Lebanese League for Women in Business (LLWB) and the Global Compact Network Lebanon (GCNL) will gather 25 managers and senior HR staff from Lebanese small and medium enterprises (SMEs) for a full-day training workshop focused on anti-sexual harassment policies at the Olayan School of Business, American University of Beirut..
This training workshop comes on the heels of the project’s Multidisciplinary Conference on Discrimination and Sexual Harassment which was held earlier this year at the Olayan School of Business. The sessions included more than 100 panelists and 800+ attendees from across sectors and disciplines to discuss issues of discrimination and sexual harassment. At the close of the conference it was clear that more efforts are needed to specifically and collaboratively push for policy change.
As a follow-up to this conference, and in direct alignment with the growing efforts of activists, civil society organizations, and government entities to promote safer workspaces within the Lebanese landscape, the upcoming training workshop is designed to provide a high-impact and effective forum for representatives from local SMEs to engage in drafting anti-sexual harassment guidelines, procedures, and/or policies that are relevant to their work settings. During the training the participants will also engage in devising relevant and preliminary implementation strategies. Ultimately, the target outcome of the training is to take concrete steps towards better combating workplace sexual harassment in Lebanon.
Interested candidates who meet the below eligibility criteria may apply to take part in the training day by June 5, 2017. To apply, click here.
