Description
---------------
Sexual Harassment: Breaking the Silence is a panel event that focuses on creating safe sharing and learning space for women and men of different ages and industries to share their stories of transgression, intimidation and discrimination of sexual nature in the workplace setting. Four panelists, each being an expert in related fields, will be invited to impart their expertise and provide insight as to what constitutes sexual harassment, common misconceptions related to genders, adverse effects, legal provisions, and accessible support systems that are related to sexual harassment in a moderated discussion.

Prior to the event, a short survey will be conducted via online platforms (Peatix and Facebook) to gather information of personal sexual-related encounters at workplace, action taken in addressing the incidents and feedback from the workplace authority. Such information will be highlighted during the event opening and panelists will be encouraged to comment on selected disclosure with their opinions and points of view.

At the end of the session, attendees are free to network with the panelists and other attendees. They are also invited to express their thoughts, experiences, or insights onto “Wall of Hope” using post-it-notes. These collections of writings together with panel discussion key learning will be shared to the public to amplify awareness and information dissemination.
