Requests for Proposals for Public Education & Outreach Campaign

Vermont’s new law addressing sexual harassment included an allocation for Vermont Commission on Women (VCW) to coordinate development of a public education and outreach program designed to make workers, employers, and all Vermonters aware of methods of reporting, where to find information, strategies for prevention, and ways to address sexual harassment in the workplace.  

We’ve issued two Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for this project.
