Organizational Leadership in Preventing and Responding to All Forms of Harassment, Exploitation, and Abuse

Two speakers share the foundations for effective safeguarding policies. Through a combination of theoretical models and anecdotes from their organization, Andrea and Blessed facilitate a tactical workshop to help organizations develop robust safeguarding policies that will prevent harassment, exploitation, and abuse of both their aid workers and program participants. They discuss the journey that FHI360 undertook to revise their safeguarding policies, including the internal partnerships they built and their steps to gain leadership buy-in. They also share strategies on how to operationalize the safeguarding policies at the country office level.
