Webinar: Sexually harassed in health care – doubly vulnerable in a hard-hit sector
Research shows that sexual harassment is a big problem in the workplace, including health care. NIKK and NIVA invite you to a Nordic webinar on the subject.
Health care workers are crucial to the functioning of society. At the same time research shows that sexual harassment is a big problem in the health care sector.

The ongoing pandemic has also starkly highlighted shortcomings in the health care sector’s working conditions, which is already a vulnerable sector.

Nordic Information on Gender, NIKK, and the Nordic Institute for Advanced Training in Occupational Health, NIVA, invite you to a webinar on these highly topical issues. Learn about the experience of the Icelandic health care sector, the Norwegian Nurses Federation and the newly appointed Swedish Equality Ombudsman, in conversation on the problem as well as important measures and solutions to it.

PANEL
Lars Arrhenius Equality Ombudsman (Diskrimineringsombudsmannen), Sweden
Bryndís Elfa Valdemarsdóttir Equality adviser of Akureyri municipality and part of the
Nordic co-operation project ‘Sexual harassment in municipal health- and care sector in
I celand, Norway and Sweden’, Iceland
Silje Naustvik Vice President, The Norwegian Nurses Federation (Norsk
Sykepleierforbund), Norway
The conversation will be moderated by Fredrik Bondestam, Director of the Swedish
Secretariat for Gender Research, PhD in Sociology specialising in research on sexual
harassment.
