NOT ANOTHER SEXUAL HARASSMENT COURSE!We’ve all sat through a mind-numbingly boring sexual harassment course. The material is important and necessary, yet it’s hard to make engaging. This course is different! First, it focuses not just on reducing harassment, but on creating a positive work environment in which everyone feels safe and supported. Second, it follows the story of an office team facing harassment issues as they learn how their words can impact those around them, and how to treat each other with respect. Third, it includes interactive assessments that challenge the student to think through scenarios and what constitutes appropriate workplace behavior. In a series of vignettes mixed with instruction, students will meet Adeela, Jason, Lisa, and Michael as they deal with both the major and minor effects of workplace harassment, and demonstrate real-world responses to situations ranging from inappropriate comments to gender and racial differences. We’ll see how workplace harassment affects not just the people involved, but the productivity of the company as a whole. Workplace harassment destroys trust, creates tension, saps productivity, and can lead to legal action as well. In between vignettes, our experts Jacki Flynn, Rebecca Heiss, and Jeremy Pickens will teach how to identify, resolve, and report workplace harassment. By the end of this course, students will be able to describe their rights and responsibilities related to workplace harassment and feel empowered to be part of a positive change in their organization. This course covers current state requirements and includes customized versions for specific states:

  • California (AB 1825)
  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • Illinois (SB 75)
  • Maine
  • New York & NYC

Course includes 80 minutes of high-quality HD content plus a handout, optional knowledge checks, and optional post-training knowledge boosters. High-quality HD content in the “Uniquely Engaging”TM Bigger Brains Teacher-Learner style!
