Workplace sexual harassment in the hospitality sector from an intersectional perspective

The project aims to explore hospitality workers’ experiences of sexual harassment in Nordic workplaces and to understand how the intersectionality of identities and social locations impacts workers’ perceptions and experiences of harassment. A focus on LGBTQI+ individuals, migrant workers, and men – groups often excluded from sexual harassment research – will extend understanding of harassment in hospitality workplaces and allow workers to suggest measures that might mitigate the occasions and impact of sexual harassment in the hospitality sector.

Using participatory research methods and semi-structured interviews, workers in Sweden, Iceland and Norway will contribute to the research and the outcomes will be used to inform industry stakeholders about ways in which workers see sexual harassment can be combatted effectively.
