Host and Dost – 26th February 2021

2,000.00 + Taxes

HOST & DOST as a community has been active since September 2020 and members have discussed several topics. On 26th Feb 2021, we will be continuing the discussion on challenges that arise in compliance & inquiry when employees are working from home or other remote set ups. We will continue to analyse and discuss solutions related to the following among other things:

  1. How employers are formulating policies & How dissemination of information is happening in virtual set ups
  2. How annual reports are being filed and the practical queries that are coming up based on functioning of different organizations
  3. How ICs are being constituted and structured & how inquiries are taking place
INR 2,000 + Taxes per person IS THE ANNUAL FEE FOR MEMBERSHIP 



With POSH at Work’s initiative ‘Host & Dost’, we hope that we are able to contribute to the profession in a small way by connecting with each other and keeping each other updated on the events that are happening in this space.


  • Internal Committee (IC) / Local Committee (LC) members (including External Members)
  • Those working (or looking to work) as an external member
  • Those conducting (or looking to conduct) training or awareness programs on POSH
  • Doing any other advisory / compliance / litigation related work on POSH (including HR managers)
  • As per POSH Law and other related Regulations, Guidelines etc. – This platform is for you.


  • Connect with each other, discuss challenges faced and find / discuss practical solutions.
  • Connect with professionals, fellow colleagues and experts – to not only learn from each other but also create a strong community that supports each other and celebrates achievements.
  • Have open discussions – Especially because several provisions under law are grey and open to interpretation one way or another
  • This platform shall also be used for free discussions as well as discussing varied perspectives, experiences and opinions. In exchange, we all would need to ensure that we respect all views.


Firstly, because it’s a one of a kind initiative to (1) Ensure open discussion (2) collaborative learning (3) Support system / Community. Over and above that, for the following reasons:

  • The discussion we will have, will be recorded and published on YouTube. However, this will be available for viewing EXCLUSIVELY for Members of ‘Host & Dost’.
  • In case you are looking to conduct a session for the first time and want to take views from peers, you can present and the peers can give you constructive feedback.
  • In case you have just started conducting inquiries and need guidance, you can raise your queries in the forum. In any case, if you have any queries, those can be discussed during the meetings.
  • In case you need any government notifications or judgments to be discussed to get more clarity – this can be done too.
  • Specialised sessions can also be organized (this will be based on discussions with peers).
  • More features being developed for effective communication (will be updated shortly)

    Host & Dost community is a group which truly works together to prevent and address the subject of sexual harassment at the workplace. The group not only helps to understand what is in black, white but also clears the shades of grey. It has been a pleasure to be associated with the group and gain from the ocean of knowledge the members bring.

    I’ve started attending this session. Its an opportunity to interact with several POSH experts across the country, learn from their experiences, issues they have faced, cases they have handled in the past. Its an enriching session and we brain storm on multiple topics.
    There is always a learning for everyone as we learn from each others experiences. The initiative will improve the knowledge of the POSH fraternity and bring them together as a whole. Hopefully our experiences will lead us to making suggestions which can contribute towards a change in the POSH Act 2013.
    Congratulations once again for the excellent initiative.
