This thesis entails documenting the experiences of former and current male and female employees within specific Egyptian companies of the private sector, including Egyptian-owned companies and international companies based in Egypt. I explore the experiences of employees in terms of corporate culture, as well as the company policies against discrimination and harassment at Egyptian companies via interviews with employees and Human Resource managers and/or the company founder. I assess what rights and protections employees are given in regards to: anti-sexual harassment and discrimination policies in the Egyptian labor law, and how the Egyptian labor laws are influenced by international conventions on Egyptian corporate practices. In a larger framework, this research aims to better understand the experiences of employees in different companies and relate how transnational and local governances affect corporate culture and policies.
