Every employee should clearly understand what behavior is considered okay and what crosses a line.

When we talk about sexual harassment in the workplace, what typically comes to mind are different scenarios or behaviors that make people feel uncomfortable or offended. Often times, these situations occur within a culture that accepts, tolerates, ignores, or avoids these inexcusable behaviors. Companies have a responsibility to protect their employees. Promoting zero-tolerance for sexual harassment should be ingrained within your culture. So where do you start? This course is designed to help you shape your company culture to one that discourages and prevents sexual harassment. We'll discuss topics like language, socializing, business trips, and the importance of training. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you believe that you've witnessed sexual harassment in your workplace, do you know what to do? Do you know who to report it to? Do you know if what you saw is even reportable?

We'll talk about the four-part reactive process of a bystander and how targets of harassment may or may not react. We'll also discuss how to intervene if you're a witness to sexual harassment. For more information, contact email@example.com.
