CUHK to host workshop about combating sexual harassment in institutions

Although the number of institutions with an anti-sexual harassment policy has risen in recent years, many educational and non-governmental institutions are still unprepared in dealing with actual cases of sexual harassment, let alone preventing it. To address the difficulties they face in implementing the policy and introduce concrete measures applicable across various settings, the Gender Research Centre, Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies of The Chinese University of Hong Kong will organise a workshop entitled “Sexual Harassment in Institutions” as part of their Annual Gender Roles Workshop series on 30 June (Saturday) from 9:15am – 12:45pm at Lecture Theatre 2, UG/F, Sino Building, Chung Chi College.

Conducted in Cantonese, the two-part workshop will consist of guest presentations and a panel discussion. The EOC’s Director of Policy, Research and Training, Dr Ferrick CHU Chung-man will be present to share insights about raising awareness of sexual harassment and enhancing the effectiveness of established policies on an institutional level.

The workshop is free and open to the public. Childcare service is also available upon request. For programme and registration details, please click the links below.
