Target group: This insight is aimed at anyone (all genders) interested in learning more about the topic of sexualized violence – regardless of background, function in the company or experience.


Was that just a stupid line? Or was it something more? Was it an accident? Or was it intentional? How widespread is sexism, as part of sexualized violence, in the company? How can I defend myself against it in the workplace? How can I protect myself and my employees?

Verena Arps-Roelle and Sebastian Arps from the act & protect® Academy will talk to you about all this and more – in a confidential and practical way. 

In this interactive presentation, you will experience and understand together what sexism and discrimination in the workplace mean, how they are defined, what different facets they have and how they affect your working environment. You will explore the punishable aspects and the more subtle and non-punishable forms – which are nevertheless unwelcome, harassing and abusive.

The insight is designed to be practical and interactive. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, take part in discussions and develop self-effective options for action in practical exercises.

About the format:

The participants will receive a profound overview of the topic and will be sensitized to its challenges with the help of practical examples. In a Q&A session, the presented contents will be reflected and discussed with own questions from the diverse corporate realities.
