If 98 percent of organizations in the United States have a harassment and discrimination policy, why does sexual harassment and discrimination continue to be such a persistent and devastating problem in the American workplace?

The scandals that have rocked Hollywood and toppled the careers of producers, directors and network news talent have raised the discussion of workplace misconduct to a new level.  Understanding the difference between discrimination and harassment, and the responsibilities that all managers have to recognize and take action is critical to ensuring an inclusive work environment.  Employers are beginning to understand the impact of #MeToo in their own organizations, and employees – from senior level managers to the newest managers in an organization - must have the tools and knowledge to ensure that policies translate into appropriate action. 

Join us for this training designed for mid- and senior-level managers, where we will examine the laws that prohibit workplace harassment, the ways those laws are translated into policy and the actions that managers should know to take when they see or learn about harassment in the workplace. 

  • How your foundation can create clear standards, policies and practices that encourage an anti-harassment culture
  • Ways to help employees, including managers, recognize inappropriate behavior and take appropriate action
  • Strategies to ensure that employees can make a claim without fear of retaliation


Designed for

All interested funders.
