#Tip the Scale: Campaign on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
#TipTheScale is a campaign to spread awareness about sexual harassment in the workplace and trigger collective action among individuals to demand and create safer working environments. Drawing inspiration from the Slavery Footprint campaign to end forced and child labor, #TipTheScale is in the process of developing an interactive online tool to show individuals just how safe they really are at work. We believe that one of the simplest paths to deep change is for the less powerful to speak as much as they listen and for the more powerful to listen as much as they speak. With this campaign, we aim to highlight the dangers of unequal power relations prevalent in the workplace and collectively TIP THE SCALE to end sexual harassment.
