Sexual Harassment Awareness Day

Sexual Harassment Awareness Day (SHAD)

Working together against sexual harassment: Numerous Swiss universities, research institutions and university-related organizations are launching the first national Sexual Harassment Awareness Day on March 23.

The project is led by the University of Lucerne, as part of the "P-7 Diversity, Inclusion and Equity in Higher Education Development (2021-2024)" program coordinated by swissuniversities. The goal of the campaign Sexual Harassment Awareness Day 2023 is to preventively counteract sexual harassment and sexism. A culture should be created and cultivated at our university in which there is no place for sexual harassment. Events and actions such as online presentations or workshops will take place throughout Switzerland on this day.
