Designing and Delivering Workplace Civility Training That Suits and Sticks

Many organizations have approached anti-harassment and workplace civility training with kid gloves, while others have ventured valiantly into staff training and difficult conversations to ensure compliance with new state law requirements or funder expectations.

Research has shown that the most effective tool to prevent harassment is bystander intervention training. Attend this workshop to learn why and how bystander intervention training works as a proactive tool. Learn how to adapt this training to suit your workplace, and how to create an empowered culture where bystanders play a leadership role in identifying and interrupting problematic behavior in the workplace.
