Why are We Still Talking About Sex Harassment? Are We Ever Going to Get it Right?
In-Person and Virtual Tuesday 06/13/2023 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), Workplace (Technical) | Intended Audience: Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
The primary workplace application is risk prevention and creating respectful workplaces, aiding in compliance and creating a positive culture. 

In this session, we will talk about strategies for addressing sex harassment. We will explore themes of an imbalance of power, toxic workplaces, why there is a persistent reluctance to report, and so on. We will talk about how sex harassment has evolved and changed, including newer forms from a remote or hybrid workplace.  We will offer some recommendations on creating more effective training and reporting solutions.   And no discussion of harassment would be complete without a discussion of retaliation and effective means of redress.  We hope to stimulate some dynamic thinking and sharing from participants.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding of the dynamics of workplace harassment -- motives/personality of harasser and reasons for non-reporting.
  • Ideas for changing training and reporting/complaint procedures for greater success.
  • Preventative strategies.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
