I am honored to have worked with Dr Charlotte Karam on the Mesh Basita Campaign during summer 2017 to advocate for the promulgation of the law to penalize #sexual #harassment
while raising awareness.
Dr Charlotte Karam was featured in the Department of State Office of Global Women’s Issues.
Dr Karam is a scholar-activist based at the Olayan School of Business, American University of Beirut. She works to advance responsible business practices, drawing from and informing the overlapping conversations about public policy and human resource development. Founding the Knowledge is Power (KIP) project, she works to empower women, promote #gender #equality
and support human rights. The KIP Project’s work includes knowledge generation, creating platforms for discussions, policy development, mobilizing for lobbying, and developing social media campaigns, such as the #Mesh_Basita
campaign which was a widely featured anti-sexual harassment campaign on local Arab and international media outlets, with over 1.5-million views (see http://thekipproject.info/#sq
-tab1). Building on this work, she recently led a team that was awarded $1.5 million grant to develop an indigenous economic indicator to trace women’s inclusions in the Arab MENA economies.
