Session title: Organisational Culture & Power: Safeguarding and Security
25 Apr 23 (11:00-12:30) UTC+2  (Pleniere C)

An organisational culture of power imbalance can have serious implications for security and safeguarding. The role of humanitarian security staff in addressing these imbalances and preventing and responding safeguarding incidents has not been adequately explored. 

By delving into a number of anonymous safeguarding case studies, this session will explore how security professionals can work with leadership, safeguarding, and HR professionals to prevent power imbalances and establish an effective safeguarding framework.


Chair: Lisa Reilly, Independent Consultant
