The new buzzwords in the corporate space today are Diversity and Inclusion. There are new policies that are becoming a key trend and organizations which are setting benchmarks each day. This is a good situation to be in. However, in many cases, because Diversity and Inclusion are being viewed as a good-to-do thing and not a business imperative, providing a safe and harassment-free workplace is also being positioned as a special privilege.
Fundamentally there is something wrong with this approach where an employee’s right to expect safety and zero harassment, is being looked at as a perk. But in order to change this mindset, the change starts with the employee himself or herself. Due to years or rather decades of bias and patriarchy, most women particularly internalize the fact that they will be treated differently. Having been subjected to harassment usually on the personal front in many instances, conditions them to view a safe environment as a benefit that the organization is providing rather than their basic right.
How can you take the onus to ensure that this is a right? Here are some ways to do it.
These are some things to bear in mind as you work in various organizations and fit into them.
