The project directly contributes addressing sexual harassment (SH) at the workplace, which is a widespread and underreported form of gender-based violence across the EU. The TEAMWORK 2 project is a direct continuation of the REC-funded TEAMWORK 1 project (ending in April 2022), whose research activities resulted in better understanding of the issue of sexual harassment at the workplace, and to a set of recommendations that will contribute to its more effective addressing at the local and national level.
The Teamwork 2 project adopts the following specific objectives:
- Enhance prevention and handling of sexual harassment at the workplace through capacity building of multipliers, who will assist companies/organizations to adopt effective internal policies (WP2).
- Improve the protection of victims/survivors and empower them to report the issue through the creation of new widely accessible services (WP3).
- Strengthen interagency collaboration and develop local/regional/ national networks that contribute to prevention and reducing of the problem (WP3, WP4).
At last, a horizontal principle of the project implementation is to promote gender equality, diversity, and non-discrimination.
