The She Connect

She is with You!
As a part of our Social Responsibility to ensure safety to Women and Children in our society, we have designed and developed a campaign ‘’The She in Every U” that address the Anti – Sexual Harassment Policies at workplaces and Academic Institutions. The objective of this campaign is to sensitize, educate and create awareness on sexual harassment among the employees and the employers. Convincing corporate management and HR heads to establish a fair mechanism to address sexual harassment in workplace is not all a simple task to be accomplished. To get this task done, we primarily focus on clear and effective communication with the company stakeholder, make them aware of the Government of India’s policies and measures dedicated to guarantee the safety of women at their workplaces and the mandatory requirement to form Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee and an Internal Complaints Committee that would remain unbiased throughout their tenure and ensure fair justice to the victim.

You are not alone, you are not abandoned, and you are not isolated. Sexual harassment at workplace is the ugly truth that can be extremely humiliating, unwelcome and painful to the employees and demeaning to the entire organization. Sexual harassment is one of the most difficult tasks to be dealt with and offering complete support and mental peace to the victim remains the utmost necessity from the Organization’s end. However, the practical situations are completely opposite and victims are more often put into embarrassing situations, physical and emotional ramifications becomes more visible resulting in an unpleasant, fearful and isolating work environment.

“The She in Every You” helps in promoting mutually respectful workplace and building congenial relationship between the co-workers. We help you understand different judicial terms related to prevention of sexual harassment act (POSH), help victims deal with the situation both legally and mentally, produce real time case stories, court judgments and media report from time to time.
