“Prevention and Handling of Sexual Harassment”: CRC-TRR Board for Gender Equality and Diversity Organises Interactive Lecture For All Project Members

Gender equality and diversity are crucial aspects for our research centre as they foster a culture of inclusivity and bring diverse perspectives, experiences, and ideas to the forefront, ultimately enhancing the quality and impact of research outcomes. In April 2024, the CRC-TRR Future Rural Africa Board for Gender Equality and Diversity organized an interactive lecture on “Prevention and Handling of Sexual Harassment” for all members of the Collaborative Research Centre. The lecture was conducted by experts from Zimmermann und Zenth.

The interactive lecture aimed to give an oversight of the essential principles surrounding the prevention and handling of sexual harassment in the workplace. The presentation introduced definitions, terminologies and the prevalence of sexual harassment, investigating its origins and diverse manifestations as well as legal basics. The contribution did not only address discrimination based on gender, but covered various layers of discrimination, such as race, age or (dis)ability, that are experienced by intersectional identities. Practical strategies for bystander interventions and the empowerment of individuals affected by harassment were discussed, alongside considerations of third-party harassment. Additionally, guidance on accessing support services, both internally and externally, was provided. The presentation was complemented by interactive discussions of case studies. Furthermore, the expert addressed how to navigate instances of harassment during research trips, offering potential courses of action for safeguarding individuals and fostering a respectful working environment.
