Workplace sexual harassment

A 2008 AWARE survey on workplace sexual harassment in Singapore found that 54% of the respondents had experienced sexual harassment in one form or another. Of these, 34% of women respondents and 19.2% of men respondents said they had been harassed several times.

To address this issue, AWARE has developed sexual harassment prevention and management programmes for corporations. These training programmes encompass the legal, human resources, and psychological aspects of the problem. The aim is to provide organisations with a holistic approach in dealing with sexual harassment at the workplace.

This training has two guides to dealing with workplace sexual harassment: the Employees’ Guide and the Manager’s Guide.

  • The employees’ guide is a basic introduction on what constitutes sexual harassment, and how to empower oneself when faced with this situation. This training is for employees, people managers, and the public.
  • The manager’s guide is an advanced workshop to equip human resource professionals, in-house counsel, and senior managers with the basic knowledge of sexual harassment, the skills to investigate and conduct an interview with the victim and perpetrator, and the tools to implement organisation policy on sexual harassment.

Workplace bullying or power harassment gives rise to an unsafe and unproductive working environment. Employees’ morale is affected and work productivity decreases when employees are distracted by emotional or psychological abuse and concerns about their job security.

Workplace bullying is any action that harms the emotional or physical well-being of a worker. Your employees should be able to work without fear of violence or harassment, in a safe and healthy workplace.

Topics include:

  • Definition of harassment and key characteristics
  • Types of harassment – corporate bullying and sexual harassment
  • Forms of harassment

Miss Representation

Typically, our training includes a film screening (90mins) accompanied by a panel-led discussion on issues such as successful leadership, company diversity, glass ceiling for women, sexual harassment and gender relations with regard to work and politics.  We can provide a speaker for the after-screening panel discussion.

Miss Representation is a highly acclaimed US documentary that premiered at the 2011 Sundance  Film Festival and was the winner of the Audience award at the 2011 Sonoma film festival. It is also part of an on-going educational outreach/ social movement in the US spearheaded by the non-profit organisation Missrepresentation.org based in San Francisco.

The film exposes how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in positions of leadership and influence in America, and how gender norms perpetuated by media are negatively affecting how young men and women grow up.
