Protecting yourself against sexual harassment in the workplace

The #metoo movement has stated the obvious: sexual harassment abounds, not just in private life, but also in the workplace. The spectrum ranges from verbal abuse to plain sexualized violence. Unfortunately, the phenomenon does not stop at the doors of academic instututions, either. This course is aimed at female academics who want to be more confident in dealing with such attacks.


You will acquire a set of options for responding to various types of inappropriate behavior and bringing the harasser back in line. The measures that we apply address the whole range of aggression - from verbal countering and clear communication of boundaries to efficient physical resistance.


We apply those methods in real world situations derived from the participants’ experience spectrum. Practising your reactions will make sure that you can retrieve them quickly and effectively in an emergency situation. By building mental clarity and a determination for action, we protect our own dignity. And aggressors don’t stand another chance.

Target Group:

  • Female academics that want to increase their confidence in how to deal with harassments.
  • Employers, e.g. Universities, companies, Institutions.
  • Gender Equality and Career Centers.
  • Employee Committees.
