EU Agencies unite against harassment on International Women’s Day

(DUBLIN, IRELAND): On the occasion of International Women’s Day #IWD2018 on 8 March, which celebrates the movement for women’s rights, more than 40 #EUAgencies and Joint Undertakings unite with a common declaration against sexual harassment in the workplace.

The statement signed by the Agencies’ Directors declares zero tolerance towards harassment and gender-based inequality.

The Heads of the EU Agencies have pledged to communicate to their staff that harassment in the workplace is not acceptable, to ensure respect for existing laws and the staff regulation, to promote diversity at work, and to provide a trusted environment in the workplace.
