Stained glass window.

March 15, 2021
9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. EDT
Location: Online Zoom Meeting

An exploratory conversation aimed at understanding the various aspects of the challenges that religious institutions share with the society at large in dealing with issues of sexual harassment is sorely needed. The objectives include recognizing and acknowledging the nature and patterns of harassment within faith and interfaith work, exploring difficulties in addressing them effectively, and discussing paths forward. Careful, open, respectful consultation will lead to a better understanding of why and how these spaces matter for the work of gender equality and social cohesion.

Highlights and conclusions from this invitation-only virtual meeting were circulated publicly following the event. All the discussions took place observing Chatham House Rule of non-attribution.

This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University, the FaithTrust Institute, the International Academy for Multicultural Cooperation, Religions for Peace, and World Faiths Development Dialogue.
