  • HERrespect: Promoting Positive Gender Relations through Workplace Interventions HERrespect: Promoting Positive Gender Relations through Workplace Interventions

    Bangladesh | BSR (Business for Social Responsibility)

    In order to address violence against women and harassment in the workplace, HERrespect will link international buyers and their supplier factories in Bangladesh, with local NGOs, to run workplace training sessions on gender, sexual  and reproductive health and rights. This is an exciting project because of its potential for scaling up and impacting upon thousands of women in the garment industry in Bangladesh and beyond. This programme aims to develop a new approach on how workplaces can be transformed to recognise gender equality as a business priority.
