On the occasion of International Women’s Day on 8 March, which celebrates the movement for women’s rights, more than 40 EU Agencies and Joint Undertakings unite with a common declaration against sexual harassment in the workplace. Following the initiative of the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE), the statement signed by the Agencies’ Directors declares zero tolerance towards harassment and gender-based inequality. The Heads of the EU Agencies have pledged to communicate to their staff that harassment in the workplace is not acceptable, to ensure respect for existing laws and the staff regulation, to promote diversity at work, and to provide a trusted environment in the workplace.
