Goal 5: Gender Equality

#MeToo: A Forum on Sexual Harassment is a 3-hour forum session organised with the objective of breaking the taboo on the discussion of sexual harassment by providing a platform for participants to have an open dialogue with invited panellists. The discussions aim to highlight the existing taboos and stigmas around sexual harassment; to increase awareness on sexual harassment by talking about different types of sexual violence and crimes; to discuss the impacts and implications of sexual harassment on an individual’s wellbeing; and to identify methods to handle sexual harassment issues legally and professionally.

Event Target:

5.2 Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation

Cultural Diversity is an activity where participants can attain a better understanding on cultural diversity through simulation activities. A simulation activity called "Bafa-bafa" is conducted to allow them to learn to perceive other cultures and assimilate into a diverse community. Participants also get to learn more about themselves and others, as well as the concept of stereotype and how it affects everyone.
