On 8–10 March 2020, the Museum of Work invites you to the conference “Long-term global perspectives on preventing sexual harassment in the workplace – policy, practice & strategies”. The conference is held in Norrköping.
As we often spend the largest part of our everyday lives at work, safe work environments are crucial. Sexual harassment in the workplace is on the agenda, with the International Labour Organization (ILO) currently working on a convention against violence and sexual harassment. In some occupations and sectors, such as the hotel and restaurant sector or the care sector, sexual harassment has been more common than in other occupations and there are differences between countries in terms of prevalence of workplace abuse.
This interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together scholars from all over the world to assemble knowledge about ways of preventing and tackling sexual harassment.
