Sexual Harassment, Exploitation, and Abuse: A Toolkit for Building a Prevention and Response Program.

Toolkit | December 1, 2019

The free, open-access toolkit provides organizations with a step-by-step guide on how to lead training and set up systems to prevent and respond to sexual abuse.

Sexual harassment, exploitation, and abuse is a problem that affects all sectors’ workforces, all corners of the globe, and people living across the full spectrum of sexualities and gender identities. Strong workplace anti-sexual harassment and assault mechanisms provide pathways for staff to access appropriate protection without fear of retaliation and promote an environment where individuals feel safe and respected. Chemonics launched a Sexual Harassment, Exploitation, and Abuse Prevention and Response (SHEA) toolkit to help the development community protect people from sexual assault and to engage organizations in working and learning together to share best practice and important lessons in SHEA. Chemonics also created an addendum to the toolkit for creating a SHEA prevention and response program during the COVID-19 pandemic.
