Samvedana organised a workshop on Sexual Harrasment at workplace for staff members of The Punjab State Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission, Sector 37, Chandigarh. Prajakta Avhad, the President of Samvedana, gave an legal insight on the forms of sexual harrasment and the available legal remedies. Ritu Pathak, executive member of Samvedana also participated in the workshop. Justice P.S.Dhaliwal, The President of PSCDRC showed keen interest in the workshop. Moreover, he himself attended the workshop despite his busy schedule. What is worthy of praise is that he has invited Samvedna to conduct more of such workshops in future too. The motive is to bring about the positive change in the workplace where women feel secure and respected for their contribution of work. To make promotion on the basis of calibre and work ethics insted of gender bias. The environment of the PSCDRC was very inspiring. Mrs. Veena Bhardwaj, Registrar, PCDRC, also attended and appreciated the workshop. Around 20 staff members took part in the workshop. The experience was mutually beneficial for the staff and team Samvedana. What was remarkable was that the staff attended the event enthusiastically and expressed their views openly. This was another feather in the cap of Samavedana. More power to our collective effort and energy!
