INDUSTRIALL TACKLES GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE

The IndustriALL’S Executive Committee recently adopted a global policy to address gender-based violence and harassment, misogyny, and sexism within its work and activities. This policy aligns with the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence.

The policy aims to create a culture shift within IndustriALL and its affiliates by increasing awareness about these issues, ensuring zero tolerance for misogyny and sexism, and establishing procedures for handling complaints. The next steps involve training programs at all levels of the organization, educating leaders and staff about the policy, and launching a campaign called ‘No Excuse’ next year to raise awareness.

This policy follows the 2021 Congress Resolution and incorporates existing policies on sexual harassment during meetings and events. It also commits to upholding the IndustriALL Pledge against workplace harassment and discrimination.
