DUBAI: Tackling a more serious topic, the team looks at what makes sexual harassment and assault so prevalent in workplaces, and what can be done to curb such behaviour.

Drawing from personal experiences and research, the team tries to unpackage some of the ways in which men oppress women in professional settings, and how inappropriate or illegal behaviour can take place and yet, never be discovered.

Why don’t women come forward with their experiences? Why don’t more men stop their colleagues from behaving inappropriately? And what can be done at companies to change these dynamics, and foster a more inclusive, transparent environment? We look at these, and other questions, on this episode of Dirhams & Dollars.
