Devex’s #AidToo coverage, launched in 2017 in the wake of the global #MeToo movement, has highlighted the prevalence of sexual violence in the global development sector. Eighty six percent of employees report knowing a colleague who has experienced work-related sexual harassment or assault, according to recent research. 

In line with these movements, employees in the international development sector have wanted to see changes, starting with their own organizations, explained Brooke Galloway, founder of SAPRI Consulting, a firm working with businesses across all sectors and NGOs on sexual assault prevention and response.
