CCIC Leaders’ Pledge on Preventing and Addressing Sexual Misconduct

CCIC Leaders’ Pledge on Preventing and Addressing Sexual Misconduct


The CCIC Leaders’ Pledge on Preventing and Addressing Sexual Misconduct represents our shared commitment as Canada’s global development and humanitarian leaders to ensure the full implementation of practices and policies that will protect and respond to our own staff, volunteers and the communities we serve. As a sector, we recognize our duty of care to all the people we work with, which is further amplified by power imbalances inherent in our work. We are committed to creating safe and respectful workplaces and programs that promote gender equality and are free from gender-based violence, including by addressing and responding to all abuse of power, holding people to account, and protecting the vulnerable.
