ACTRA Toronto is continuing its work on the issue of sexual harassment in our industry. Here is an update.
SEXUAL HARASSMENT/AFTER HOURS EMERGENCY REPORTING
The After Hours Emergency Reporting service has been renamed to ensure that members wishing to report harassment always know where to call.The protocol used by the service that handles the call intake and forwarding has been updated accordingly. the new number is at the bottom of every page of the ACTRA Toronto website, in our Contacts page and, of course, on all of the pages that deal with discrimination and harassment.
