1 IN 4 SURVEY RESPONDENTS HAVE WITNESSED OR EXPERIENCED SEXUAL HARASSMENT
Results of the #ChescoKnows Workplace Sexual Harassment survey, supported by the Chester County Commissioners and undertaken by the Chester County Women’s Commission(CCWC) and Chester County Fund for Women and Girls (CCFWG), reveal that one in four people (26%) in Chester County have witnessed or experienced sexual harassment in their current workplace. The findings also note that nearly two-thirds of people (62%) reported to have witnessed or experienced sexual harassment at some point in their career.
The #ChescoKnows survey was distributed throughout Chester County between November 2018 and January 2019, and garnered more than 900 responses in both English and Spanish. The results captured a range of experiences and insights from current Chester County workplaces.
