Women’s Networking – Respect in the Workplace
May 21, 2019 @ 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
A common problem for women in the workplace in Vietnam is sexual harassment. While women in all types of working environments encounter sexual harassment, recent media articles have highlighted that women working in the garment industry face an extremely high level of sexual harassment and abuse. In light of these concerns, the Vietnamese government is taking measures to provide better protection to women. Notably, the latest version of the draft Labour Code includes sexual harassment as a ground for dismissal. We will welcome Florence Bacin from the NGO, Fair Wear Foundation, which works with brands to improve working conditions in the garment industry, who will update us on the current situation and discuss ways in which further advocacy can help to promote respect in the workplace.
