The practice room is committed to the prevention, prohibition and redressal of sexual harassment. This policy is applicable to all teachers, assistant teachers, volunteers, students, contractual workers, staff, guests and visitors, of all genders.
We voluntarily follow the provisions of ‘The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013’, of the Government of India, in dealing with incidents of sexual harassment.
As per the guidelines of the Act, we have set-up an ‘Internal Committee’ comprising student-members, instructors, and an external advisor.
Our external advisor is Enfold India. Enfold works across India, to address issues on gender and sexuality, through education, training, research, advocacy, and tangible support – in schools, communities, and institutions.
Enfold also conducts periodic sensitisation sessions for all students. Further, all instructors are expected to attend a training program on gender sensitization and personal safety conducted by Enfold.
