Gender inside GIZ: STOP IT – Preventing and dealing with sexual harassment

Gender inside GIZ

Feminist Development Cooperation in Practice


Dear colleagues,


You are invited!

STOP IT – Preventing and dealing with sexual harassment


13:00 – 14:00 CET


What is sexual abuse and harassment? What are the consequences? And what can we – at GIZ – do about it?


In our session, you will learn more about preventing and dealing with sexual harassment at GIZ. You will get information about what to do in case of sexual harassment at the workplace and exchange with colleagues on their work and experience.


Sexual harassment and abuse are serious issues that affect individuals and communities worldwide. It can have devastating and long-lasting effects on survivors, including physical, emotional, and psychological harm. It is important to create safe and respectful environments. Therefore, next to the contact points like e.g. Stop-it, many GIZ country offices have developed a SEAH (Sexual exploitation, abuse and sexual harassment) policy and take action against sexual misconduct. And we would ask every country office – that does not have a SEAH policy yet – to do the same.


To learn more visit the IDA page: Preventing and dealing with sexual harassment

Or check out the documents on SEAH from different GIZ country offices here. Please also upload your SEAH policy, if you haven’t done so.


We are looking forward to your participation!


The session will be held in English and won’t be recorded.
