Eliminating Sexual Harassment in the Israeli Workplace

Each year, countless women face sexual harassment on the job in Israel--causing some to lose their positions when they complain. Others simply quit rather than file a complaint.  During our visit yesterday to our new grantee, the Association of Rape Crisis Centers in Israel, we learned about their plan to provide in-depth consultations to several employers so they can reduce, and hopefully eliminate, this threat to their female (and male!) employees. Companies that adopt comprehensive plans would be eligible for citation--making Israel the first country in the world to recognize these good corporate citizens.
