CIC NanoGUNE conducting trainings for directors on sexual harassment

The R&I partner CIC NanoGUNE has held two trainings for directors on the topic of sexual harassment during summer 2020. The main aim of the trainings was to raise awareness about the sexual harassment. Different forms of violence against women (and gender-based violence) was discussed, trying to reflect upon what would be sexual harassment (although not everyone understood them the same way), with specific examples of other companies. Law and recent changes in this field were also discussed. The methodology and contents of the trainings can be summarized as follows:

1.       Basic aspects about the theory of gender

2.       Ways of sexist’s violence

3.       Sexual harassment and owing sex: definitions, types, consequences for the victim and at work

4.    The legislation about sexual harassment and owing sex

5.      Sexual harassment protocols as prevention of labour risks and as part of an egalitarian culture: characteristics, functions and procedures
