Ending GBV in the World of Work: new insights and tools from C190

About the event

Please join us for a virtual discussion exploring how the ILO’s newest labor convention, Violence and Harassment in the World of Work (C190), can help U.S. employers, unions, advocates, and government leaders continue making progress to prevent and remedy gender-based violence and harassment, including sexual harassment.

C190’s rights-based, inclusive, integrated and gender-responsive approach emphasizes collaboration among all stakeholders to create a world of work free from all forms of violence and harassment. As the first international treaty to address this complex set of issues, C190 offers insights and tools that support efforts already underway in the U.S. and suggest additional ways forward.
