SET THE TONE – Gender safety at work

SET THE TONE project is a 24-month initiative run by 6 organisations based in Belgium, Italy, Poland, Slovenia and Spain.

The project aims to impact employers and employees’ mind-set and daily behaviours practiced at the workplace towards gender stereotypes, sexual harassment, including cyber-harassment, through their active engagement as positive key players in preventing and reporting sexual harassment cases.

The project actions involve employers and employees with a specific role in assuring health and safety at workplace and other employees, both men and women, potential victims and perpetrators; among the employees, particular attention will be paid to newly hired and those in internship who are supposed to be more vulnerable.

The main project activities are:

• European Alliance – network established by social economy enterprises and SMEs together with the aim to support victims of Gender-based violence (GBV), to transform companies in leaders on this fight and to encourage a behavioural change within the private sector.
• Survey – collecting information directly from the enterprises, helps to understand the perception and awareness of psychological sexual harassment within the enterprises and analyse the specific needs of the workers.
• Training Course – a tailored training for employers and employees, possible victims and perpetrators. The training programme supports the improvement of competences to address sexual harassment at workplace, in reporting and responding.
