Policy Number :  2

Approval date  : August 28, 2020


This policy outlines the definition of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) and the process to follow for protection from sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA).

Policy Scope

The Community of Practice for Caribbean Immigrant Entrepreneurs (The CoP), volunteers, partnering members and affiliate service providers for CoP activities and the BIDEM International Caribbean Diaspora Entrepreneurs’ Conference and Trade Show (BIDEM) are expected to uphold the highest standards of personal and professional conduct and integrity, within their personal lives, and within their involvement with The CoP, The BIDEM Committee and Magate Wildhorse Consulting at all times and in so doing protect vulnerable persons from sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA).  The CoP, its incorporators and sponsoring partners has a zero-tolerance policy for SEA.  The CoP implements efficient policies, procedures and systems to prevent and respond to SEA.

All employees, volunteers, members, and service delivery partners are governed by and subject to this policy and guidelines and recourse articulated here-in.  The policy therefore applies to all CoP full and part-time employees, board members, contractors, volunteers, interns, consultants, partnering associates as well as  BIDEM specific volunteers and partners and contractors.
