[Content Warning: Sexual Harassment] Safer Spaces: Creating Sexual Harassment Free Workplaces in BC’s Tourism and Hospitality Industry is a three-year initiative developed by go2HR with support from Justice Canada to raise awareness about and help prevent sexual harassment in tourism and hospitality workplaces. The Safer Spaces initiative has two foundational components:
- An extensive education and information campaign to help raise awareness about sexual harassment and provide resources to help prevent it
- The creation of two industry-focused online training courses; one for employers and supervisors and the other for workers
- In 2020, 25% of women and 17% of men experienced sexual misconduct in their workplace. (Stats Canada)
- Over 25% of employees did not feel like their employer had given them information on identifying, reporting, or accessing resources related to sexual harassment (Stats Canada).
Safer Spaces hopes to challenge and change our industry by providing easy access to training and resources on the topic and raising awareness about preventing sexual harassment in BC’s workplaces.
