PART II. PROMOTING MUTUAL RESPECT AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE HARASSMENT: FOR NEW FACULTY AND STAFF (MANDATORY) OPEN TO ALL.
Tuesday, October 2, 2012, 9:30am – 12:30pm; Room 179 Grace Dodge
Presented by KC Wagner from Cornell’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations
(sexual harassment; anti-discrimination; prevention of bias)
In an effort to increase the College’s awareness of the federal and state laws and institutional procedures surrounding sexual harassment and other forms of bias and harassment, we are providing this session for new faculty and staff. The session is OPEN TO ALL who missed the sessions last year. Participation in one workplace harassment session is MANDATORY.
The Promoting Mutual Respect and Preventing Workplace Harassment workshop is designed as a two hour interactive session created to help engage and educate everyone on the importance of understanding the laws, policies, avenues of institutional support for appropriate corrective action and protection against retaliation; and, in addition, to identify behaviors that contribute to bias, stereotyping, and harassment. The program will enlighten you and reinforce your obligations to conduct yourself in a manner that contributes to the well-being of the TC community. We have engaged KC Wagner, Director of Workplace Issues at the Cornell School of Labor Relations, to lead the training.
***Failure to attend may render the College unable to indemnify or defend you if you are involved in a complaint leading to legal action. ***
These efforts are in response to the many TC voices requesting professional development. Professional Development, an institution-wide effort underway since September 2005, will strengthen the College’s integrity in its internal processes and enhance the community. The Promoting Mutual Respect and Preventing Workplace Harassment training is a continuation of designed programs that will ultimately enhance productive working and community relationships and increase awareness and surrounding these pressing issues.
