Harassment at UN – level 3

21-01-2019 15:00

The United Nations is an international organisation which aims to promote peace, security and cooperation, and seventeen per cent of the staff there completed an online survey about their experience with sexual harassment at the bloc.

From the surveyed 30,000 people, 10,000 of them experienced sexual harassment at the bloc in the last two years, and more than a half of the harassed experienced it in an office setting.

Difficult words: staff (the employees – the people who work somewhere), promote (support), bloc (an organisation of countries).
