Gender-based violence in the world of work
The Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice (CDPRP) is pleased to invite you to a hybrid event on Gender-based violence in the world of work, where Dr Viginta Ivaškaitė-Tamošiūnė and Dr Sofia Strid will present the findings of their latest research.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, bullying, harassment, violence, verbal abuse, verbal threats, and unwanted sexual attention remained part of the experience of many workers. The 2021 European Working Conditions Telephone Survey (EWCTS) data show that 12.5% of workers in the EU experienced some form of adverse social behaviour. The share of women experiencing adverse social behaviour at work was consistently higher than that of men. In her presentation, Viginta will look at adverse social behaviours by age groups, presence of customers, place of work, by country, and for specific sectors and occupations. Exposure to adverse social behaviour at work is also linked to the negative health outcomes, as well as job demands and resources. Sofia will present the importance of a gender+ framework when analysing inequalities using findings from two European-funded projects: UniSAFE and RESISTIRÉ. She will demonstrate how gender-based violence is highly prevalent, and how its increase is related to inequalities in other domains (e.g. work, economy). She will also discuss the organisational context of violence Using UNISAFE specifically .
