Chamber sponsoring webinar on sexual harasssment, Feb. 28

From BOWLING GREEN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce announces a Webinar presented in partnership with The Employers’ Association. This Webinar will be held February 28th at 8 a.m. Registrants can participate from anywhere via personal devices.

“Let’s Talk About Sexual Harassment, Baby! Moving Beyond Compliance to Creating a Culture of Respect and Civility in the Workplace”

During this webinar, participants will learn:

• How to promote respect and civility in the workplace

• The importance of Leadership and Accountability in preventing harassment

• How to avoid the perils of “Complicit silence”

• Tips for updating your company’s sexual harassment training

The wave of recent sexual harassment scandals has prompted many companies to evaluate their sexual-harassment training programs. The allegations have shown how ignoring this problem can have devastating effects on victims as well as bystanders, can destroy organizational culture, and damage your company reputation. But, workplace harassment training that simply focuses on eliminating unwelcome or offensive behavior based on characteristics such as race or gender is not enough. To stop harassment, companies must go beyond compliance training and make a commitment to promote respect and civility in the workplace.

This is a free event, but reservations are required by Monday February 26. On February 26 registrants will be given a call in code for the Webinar. RSVP by contacting Marissa Muniz at MarissaMuniz@bgchamber.net or by calling (419) 353-7945. This event is presented by the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce Business Council in partnership with The Employers’ Association.
