Learn how to take your workplace training, policies and practices to the next level to create a culture of respect and equity and thereby decrease liability for sexual harassment and other forms of harassment and violence.  

In its 2016 task force report on sexual harassment in the workplace, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission highlights that despite 30 years of mandatory training, workplace harassment remains a persistent problem. The report urges employers to explore new and different training as part of a holistic culture of non-harassment that starts at the top. Join us to learn how to approach training in a more holistic way that has a measurable and positive impact on the workplace. At the end of this session, you will be better able to:

  • Recognize the interplay between sexual harassment and workplace culture.
  • Apply a Futures Without Violence case study to improve training, policies, practices and prevention efforts in your workplace.
  • Identify the most effective practices for combating workplace violence and harassment.
