  • Why is PSEA important?
  • How to identify SEA in your work context
  • What to do as a bystander to SEA
  • Understanding the Code of Conduct, policies and complaints procedures of your organization

Participants will also get practical tools to facilitate PSEA trainings themselves after this training:

  • Creating a safe(r) learning space
  • Managing triggers and difficult conversations
  • Survivor-centered and trauma-informed approaches to facilitation
  • Using case study scenarios
  • Adapting the training to your organization

She supports organizations in the public and private sectors in improving their harassment prevention mechanisms by providing training, coaching and guidance on their policies, codes of conduct and complaint mechanisms. In 2019, Juliette co-authored the practical guide It’s Not That Grey which gives concrete tools to identify harassment in its early stages and deconstruct the so-called “grey zone” of sexual harassment. Before starting her freelance career, Juliette worked with a multitude of human rights NGOs on refugee and migrant rights, women’s rights and LGBTQI+ rights in Canada, France, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK and Belgium.
