Preventing Sexual Harassment: It Starts with a Conversation

Share Post

Speaker: Nikki Larchar

In the second session in our Preventing Sexual Harassment series, we explore how preventing sexual harassment starts with having a conversation about what it means to be an ally in the workplace. During this session, we dive into what “counts” as sexual harassment, examples of how it can show up, and most importantly what we can do and say when we experience or witness harassing behavior. The discussion topics and information that you learn during this session can easily be applied to your team. Consider this your mini train-the-trainer session.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the five D’s of bystander intervention
  • Implement training moments with your team
  • Practice how to speak up for yourself and others
