The Changing Workplace: “What is appropriate behavior”

The Changing Workplace: “What is appropriate behavior”; a skit competition/ program aimed to raise awareness and share practices for dealing with gender-based harassment at the workplace was organized by Dosti House – Your American Space in collaboration with Majlis Legal Centre, NGO dedicated to evolving innovative legal practices to defend women’s rights. The 2 hour program on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 involved students presenting short skits of 5 minutes each followed by an interactive discussion led by Adv. Nausheen Yousuf, lawyer at Majlis and Ruchira Chaudhary, Independent Management Consultant.

The ‘topic’ for the skit was the understanding of “appropriate behavior in the workplace.” The skits had to focus on recognizing and dealing with:

  • verbal abuse
  • derogatory actions
  • negative stereotyping of women and men
  • any behavior that makes someone feel uncomfortable

Under the guidance of our faculty - Mrs.Joulyn Kenny, ten FYBAMMC students participated in this competition. Each college focused on issues plaguing the workplace in this century. The event started at 2pm after the registration and formalities were completed.

The judges asked the students who would like to present their skit first; we raised our hands to show our courage and confidence. We were greatly appreciated- by our faculty and the judges -as we were the first presenters. During our performance, all students were engrossed, as our skit had a little bit of spice, humor, and most of all facts.

Our drama portrayed inappropriate' or 'unreasonable' behaviour that any person- in regard to the circumstances- would find unacceptable, humiliating, threatening, victimizing or undermining to their mental well-being. The skits that were presented by other colleges also focused on recognizing and dealing with such “inappropriate behavior” in the corporate environment.

After all students, presented the skits, the Guest Speaker, Ruchira Chaudhary, an Independent Management Consultant, now working with an NGO shared her insights and experience on workplace behavior. This was followed by Nausheen Yousuf’s talk on the legal aspects of workplace behavior and fundamental rights we have as employees.

The discussion gave us insights to how we can identify red flags to “inappropriate behavior” at a workplace and measures that can be taken to combat the same.
