Topics

#Human Rights, #Womens Empowerment


Earlier this year, the International Labour Organization (ILO) voted overwhelmingly to adopt a Convention on the Elimination of Violence and Harassment in the World of Work. For the first time, there is an internationally agreed-upon standard and guidance for addressing violence and harassment in the world of work, setting a high bar for companies and governments on their responsibilities to manage this critical issue. This represents an important step forward on strengthening protections for all workers around the world against violence and harassment.

BSR, along with Business Fights Poverty and CARE, will host a webinar to explore the new ILO Convention in more depth. BSR members and partners looking to strengthen their policies on violence, harassment, and women’s empowerment should attend.
