Event description

Registration ►

As part of the webinar series on sexual harassment organized by the Office of UN Women’s Executive Co-ordinator on Sexual Harassment Ms. Purna Sen, we continue our discussion in the second of two webinars on the COVID-19 pandemic, this time focusing on work settings.

In this webinar we turn our attention to those who have attended workplaces through this time: health workers, carers and domestic workers.

  • Is it possible to speak about their experiences when attention is focused on matters of life and death?
  • Are different contours of risk and ease of being targeted emerging now?
  • If people cannot speak about their experiences, how do we make space for them in our work?
