Calling All Trainers: We Owe Society a Better Sexual Harassment Prevention Training
Why you should attend: #MeToo makes it clear harassment prevention training does not actually prevent harassment - and that’s because it’s too focused on compliance and corrective action, rather than actually preventing harassment. Enter trusty ol’ ADDIE, that suggests we first analyze the behavior we want, and then develop training around that. Take a step back from the training you’re doing and learn how to develop and deliver training that actually prevents harassment.
Description: Often times, sexual harassment training checks the compliance box and then stops there. While it may protect your organization from legal ramifications, it may not be enough to actually influence proper behavior. You have to include training and hand’s on exercises around how employees should be treating each other on a daily basis. By using the ADDIE model, you can develop a training that meets all your needs. From analysis all the way to evaluation, the model will ensure that you are maximizing employee training to actually prevent harassment.
In this session, you will:
- Evaluate your current harassment prevention training against behaviors needed to prevent harassment, such as respect and assertiveness
- Use the ADDIE Model to design and deliver training that teaches the behaviors you do want from employees, rather than those you don’t
- Use the ADDIE Model to design and deliver training that solidifies a “see something, say something culture”
- Implement additional pieces that must be in place to support accountability for the training, such as a healthy workplace policy and coaching for those crossing the line
