By: Hayley Reid

The Cayman Islands Government will host a series of district meetings across Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac, over the next three weeks to discuss the proposed Sexual Harassment Bill, 2023.

Deputy Chief Officer in charge of Government’s Policy Coordination Unit, Jason Webster has said that the robust discussion on the Sexual Harassment Bill during the town hall meeting on Tuesday, 15 August was very encouraging. “We were thrilled to see that level of engagement from the public. We hope that the public, particularly members of the business community who will be asked to ensure many of the provisions of the bill are upheld, continues to participate in this vital conversation.”  

The panel for the town hall was Karlene Bramwell, Senior Policy Analyst, Gender Affairs Unit; Dr Alexandra Bodden, Psychologist and small business owner; and Lauren Knight, Deputy Chief Officer for Strategic Operations and Governance in Portfolio of the Civil Service.
