UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – One third of UN staff and contractors experienced sexual harassment in the past two years, according to a report released by the United Nations on Tuesday. The online survey, carried out by Deloitte in November, was completed by 30,364 people from the United Nations and its agencies – just 17 percent of those eligible. The survey comes amid the wider “Me Too” movement around the world against sexual harassment and assault. More than half of those experienced sexual harassment said it happened in an office environment, while 17.1 percent said it happened at a work-related social event. Only one in three people said they took action after experiencing sexual harassment.
