Sexual harassment in the workplace

Unfortunately, sexual harassment is present in many work spaces. Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. Regardless of gender, class, race, sexual orientation, ability, belief, or ethnicity, sexual harassment can affect one person or many in a work, learning, or living space.


Creating a healthy environment

Everyone in the workplace is part of the solution to ending sexual harassment and creating a culture of respect. This training will help participants identify sexual harassment and other toxic workplace behaviors. Participants will understand that each individual is responsible for creating a more respectful environment where everyone thrives. Finally, through scenarios and group practice, participants will understand how they can intervene to lessen harm and increase respect.

 

This training defines the problem, teaches how we can use our power to make a change, and redefines the rules for ending harassment and discrimination so we can make a positive difference.
