How to deal with sexism and harassment in the workplace
Workshop – How to deal with sexism and harassment in the workplace
Sexism and harassment in the workplace is a real concern for any organization wanting to create an inclusive working environment to boost business success and enhance its employer brand. In the post #MeToo era it’s also important as all leaders are increasingly being held legally accountable.
Men and women welcomed at this workshop which can be live or as part of our Online Lockdown Learning Progams.
80% of women experience sexism in the workplace. 23% experience direct sexual harassment. One of the reasons this prevails because it has been normalized into our culture. Gender bias and behaviour around gender based expectations are so embedded into our daily professional lives that we are sometimes unaware that it is even going on and we remain oblivious. If we are aware, research shows that women are reluctant to come forward. They are even more reluctant to intervene to support other women. This is why support from male colleagues or allies is critical.
Who should attend
The impact of social media means that all employers must demonstrate that their workplaces are safe and secure to protect their employer brand. But despite having formal policies in place sexism and sexual harassment goes on. If you witness it personally, maybe you don’t know how to go about dealing with it. Maybe you are the target.
Your employees can attend this power coaching workshop, either in person or as part of the 3Plus Online Lockdown Learning Programs.
You will find out some very practical and concrete tips on how to deal with sexism and harassment in your workplace :
- As a leader – what changes can you make for your team and what demands can you make of your own bosses to create an inclusive atmosphere and eliminate a toxic workplace culture. With the international scandals it’s important to convey the message that your workplace is a safe place to be and not just avoiding third party liability.
- As a bystander – learn the critical steps to staging a bystander intervention when you see another person being targeted.
- As an individual – learn what you can do to create a constructive conversation, identify the problem discuss the impact and find a solution.
