Guide - Mainstreaming gender equality, disability and social inclusion (GEDSI) and the prevention and response to sexual violence in vocational education and training institutions

The ILO Skills for Prosperity Programme worked on establishing new regulations in Indonesian TVET institutions to address sexual harassment and violence in higher education for the very first time. The work was completed with four state polytechnics, establishing a senior taskforce responsible, working with social partners to develop standard operating procedures (SOPs) that integrated investigations, prosecutions and victim support with local services; and publishing and socialising the guidelines within the institution.

In this context, this Guide and its corresponding Training Manual were published. This guide contributes to ensure that all campus residents can increase their knowledge and understanding of GEDSI and Prevention and Response to Sexual Violence. In addition, it aims to foster the values of gender equality and maintain norms of non-violence, and ensures that no one is left behind in the progress.
