The World Health Organization estimates that one in three women worldwide have been subject to physical or sexual violence. These crimes are largely unreported and many women and men suffer in silence. The recent Me Too Movement and the Time’s Up initiative have elevated awareness of the prevalence of sexual harassment in the workplace and inspired many organizations and business leaders to recognize gender-based violence and sexual harassment as critical business issues. On the occasion of the adoption of the first-ever global convention to combat violence and harassment in the world of work, global experts from the United Nations and the private sector come together to discuss how organizations and leaders can create a safe and fair work environment.
