Safe Spaces: Recognizing and Preventing Harassment in the Workplace
In order for each of us to do our best, it is critical that we work together to create a workplace environment that is emotionally safe and respectful of all of the differences that we bring to work with us each day.
Safe Spaces: Recognizing and Preventing Harassment in the Workplace was created specifically for that purpose. Starting with an exploration of what genuinely respectful workplaces look like, this program explores the behaviors that lead to consistently respectful work cultures and those that do just the opposite. This leads to a discussion and exploration of the legal obligations that we all have to co-create an environment free of discrimination and harassment as defined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In particular, it focuses in detail on sexual harassment because of its complexity and sometimes subjective elements.
Safe Spaces is available as either a 2 hour or 4-hour classroom module and can be customized to support your own organizations existing policies and procedures. It is also available as a customizable eLearning process. Call us for more details!
