Brief Description

In 2015,  the Association of Rape Crisis Centers in Israel won a tender from the Israeli Ministry of Economics to draft a voluntary code that will give managers a more exact tool for preventing and handling sexual harassment in the workplace. The association turned to the Israel Standards Institute to help with definitions and explanations to the laws in Israel pertaining to sexual harassment. The Association then proceeded to develop tailor-made prevention programs for organizations who opted to participate in the voluntary code. This effort is still ongoing.
