Creating a Culture of Civility: Thinking About Harassment Prevention in a New Light
About this Event
Harassment training generally consists of teaching respondents how to avoid liability from harassment complaints. This is especially true in trainings designed for supervisors and managers. The EEOC’s 2015 Task Force on harassment in the workplace found that true prevention begins with management and focuses on teaching respondents how to create a respectful and civil workplace. This course will review the EEOC’s Task Force findings and give suggestions and ideas on how to create a culture of civility in your workplace.
Distinguish between harassment trainings that will work and those that will fail.
Define civility in the workplace.
Develop ideas and plans that would create a culture of civility in a workplace.
