Sexual Harassment in the Media
“The WIN team really did a fantastic job in sensitizing our staff on sexual harassment. You made them comfortable enough to raise their concerns and ask questions; that is highly appreciated and particularly important for management because in the process we got feedback on where we may be failing.” WIN Advisory Partner, Sub Saharan Africa.
In 2021 WIN will release results from a large-scale research project on sexual harassment in the media industry. The research, conducted in partnership with City University and supported by Ahram Canadian University in the Arab Region,aims to bring forward experiences and quantitative data from media operating in 19 countries throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, the Arab Region, Southeast Asia, Russia and, Central America.
This builds on research conducted by WIN in 2017 which identified a gap in available data on sexual harassment in media, specifically in these regions.
