Leading A Harassment-Free Work Environment
Workplace harassment is all too common. And, while harassment prevention is everyone’s responsibility, those in leadership positions have a special set of workplace duties for which they are responsible. This workshop addresses those obligations and will assist leaders in preventing and responding to incidents of sexual harassment.
In this workshop, leaders will learn the types and components of workplace harassment, discuss boundaries for acceptable behavior and review examples of sexual and non-sexual harassment. Participants will also explore appropriate and inappropriate uses of email, texting and social media. Leaders will discuss a model for Ten Rules of Respect and learn techniques for helping their own teams develop structures and strategies of respect and civility. Leaders will also explore a manager’s obligations and organizational risk factors, learn how to address harassment when it is observed, experienced or reported and review reporting and investigation processes.
