In 2018, the Vermont General Assembly passed Act 183, directing the Vermont Commission on Women, in consultation with the Vermont Attorney General and the Vermont Human Rights Commission, to develop a public education and outreach program designed to make Vermont employees, employers, and members of the public aware of:
Methods for reporting employment and work-related discrimination and sexual harassment;
Where to find information regarding:
laws related to work-related discrimination and sexual harassment
best practices for preventing employment and work-related discrimination and sexual harassment
Methods for preventing and addressing sexual harassment in the workplace
This work has been divided into two projects now open for proposals through the state government public bid process:
Sexual Harassment and Work-Related Discrimination Resource Collection and Development
Sexual Harassment and Work-Related Discrimination Public Education and Outreach Campaign

The Vermont Commission on Women (VCW) is a non-partisan state agency working to advance rights and opportunities for women and girls. Sixteen volunteer commissioners and representatives from organizations concerned with women’s issues guide VCW’s public education, coalition building, and advocacy efforts.
