Sexual harassment victims can be of any race, gender, age, class, and employment level. Sexual harassment is a sensitive topic as many women, and some men, have experienced it. It can leave people with a variety of feelings including vulnerability, lack of trust, anger, fear, frustration or being shut down.

Upon the successful completion of this course, employees can expect to gain knowledge and understanding in the following areas:

  • How to recognize and identify different forms of sexual harassment including important terminology, who can be harassers and victims, impact of intimidation and hostile environments, sexual harassment myths and facts, laws concerning sexual harassment, types of sexual harassment, how to recognize sexual harassment, and the impact and costs associated with sexual harassment
  • How to address sexual harassment including the steps you can take if you are a target of sexual harassment or the steps you should take if you think you are observing sexual harassment
  • How to respond to sexual harassment including how to respond to sexual harassment, how supervisors should respond to sexual harassment, and why it's important to have sexual harassment policies

The warning signs of workplace harassment may not always be visible, but the need to understand what they are and to be preventive are just as important.
