Workplace Application:
If “same-old” harassment prevention practices worked, so many people wouldn’t be saying #MeToo. 

Since the #MeToo movement began, there has been growing consensus that the anti-harassment practices of the past are insufficient to address bad behavior at work. Based on empirical research, evidence-based best practice, and recent survey data about employer practices, this session outlines ten key changes that organizations can make to improve current training, complaint handling, and communications -- as well as new initiatives to implement, such as identifying critical risk areas, increasing transparency, and using HR data -- to maximize the impact and effectiveness of your anti-harassment efforts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Knowledge of empirical research illustrating the shortcomings of traditional anti-harassment practices.
  • Data insights from national surveys regarding employers' prevention practices, as well as  employee attitudes and behaviors related to harassment prevention.
  • A checklist of action items to enhance the impact of your organization's anti-harassment programs, procedures, and communications.
  • Strategies for taking your current anti-harassment efforts to a new level.
