Third Sector has launched an anonymous online survey that invites people working in the voluntary and not-for-profit sector to share their views on and experiences of sexual harassment in fundraising.
In recent years, the title has reported extensively on allegations of sexual harassment perpetrated against fundraisers and complaints over the handling of sexual misconduct.
As the sector returns to in-person events and meetings after the restrictions and remote work of the Covid-19 pandemic, Third Sector wants to understand the scale of the problem and whether anything has changed.
The survey will form the basis of an in-depth feature written by former features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney, which will be published in the final print edition of Third Sector.
It seeks to understand the experiences of fundraisers who have dealt with sexual harassment at work, whether they feel leaders are responding to instances of sexual harassment appropriately, and what changes need to be made.
The anonymity of respondents will be protected throughout the process, and for legal reasons any individuals identified as perpetrators will not be named.
