He spoke about the association between Asia-Pacific Institute of Management and HR Success Talk, and the previous events held at the campus in association with HR Success Talk. He also highlighted the need for an effective awareness campaign to educate masses about sexual harassment at work place and raise a voice against the crime that seems to have been taking place in almost every corner of the world.
Dr. Aparna Sethi, one of the key speakers in the guest panel, highlighted the key reasons why cases of sexual harassment often go unnoticed in offices. She delved deep into the issue citing the core industries / sectors where sexual harassment is quite commonplace, and why it’s high time that women and even men should speak up for themselves, and that the employers must ensure the safety of their employees. Ms. Rachna Roy and Ms. Mala Thapar further explored the laws that govern the crime and the best practices to tackle any unwelcome act or behaviour by a colleague, immediate supervisor, or people in senior profiles.
All in all, it was a highly engaging, informative, and inspiring event. The key speakers were also facilitated with tokens of appreciation by the Asia-Pacific Team.
