On 29 May 2022, we organised the launching event of the E-Learning course, in the Geneva Hotel in Amman. The event was the occasion for the course organisers and trainers to meet with the audience, composed of trade union representatives, workers, civil society members and officials. The course was officially presented, with its different features and objectives.
The launching event was also the occasion for the public to ask questions about the topic of violence and sexual harassment in the world of work. Views were exchanged in a fruitful and friendly spirit. People attending the event registered their email in the attendance sheet and were the first to receive the link in order to start the course.
