#MeToo movement, as a movement against sexual harassment and assault, has spread virally since October 2017 and has different variations across the globe. Standards of behavior expected in a workplace of an organization often vary in different counties and regions, resulting in great challenges for international organizations and companies to develop coherent internal policies but also being adaptable to local regulations and laws. It has drawn great attention in China.

From the #metoo movement to various cases of discrimination, bullying and sexual harassment that catch news headlines, many international organizations are tightening their workplace rules to emphasize the importance of providing a safe and respectful workplace.
