SAJIDA’s Sexual Harassment Elimination Committee (SHEC) completed organization-wide orientation on Sexual Harassment and Code of Conduct in December 2019. Through the day-long orientations, participants were informed about SHE Policy and Code of Conduct for field staffs of all programs and projects. The Committee focused on creating awareness on unwanted acts, words, gestures; either physical, verbal or others forms; that are considered as sexual harassment. Also educating participants about complain process, their responsibility as a staff, supervisor and field focal point, in addition to punishments for violations of these policies.
SAJIDA strives to create an environment in the organization that promotes mutual respect irrespective of gender, sex, ethnicity and race. Towards this end and in line with Government directives, a Sexual Harassment Elimination Committee was formed in 2018 to create awareness about the organization’s gender policy, practice zero tolerance of any gender-based violence and undertake appropriate redressal in case of violations.
