Sexual Harassment and Other Biases and Harassments - TRAINING
New Employee and Faculty Orientation Series
Promoting Mutual Respect and Preventing Workplace Harassment
Dear TC Community,
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 harassment, we have been delivering a series of trainings since the 2006 - 2007 academic year for faculty, staff and administration.
The Promoting Mutual Respect and Preventing Workplace Harassment orientation session 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 to identify behaviors that contribute to bias, stereotyping, and harassment. The program will enlighten you and reinforce your obligation 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 trainings.
Professional Development, an institution-wide effort underway since September 2005, has come in response to the many TC voices requesting professional development and strengthens the College's integrity in its internal processes and enhances the community. The Orientation Program also continues to hold the Information Privacy Compliance Trainings addressing the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. The Promoting Mutual Respect and Preventing Workplace Harassment training is one of the series of designed programs that will ultimately enhance productive working and community relationships and increase awareness surrounding these pressing issues.
Listed below are the dates scheduled for the training: Promoting Mutual Respect and Preventing Workplace Harassment (Sexual Harassment, Anti-Discrimination & Title IX Training). Participation in one harassment session is required. Failure to do so may render the College unable to indemnify or defend you if you are involved in a complaint leading to legal action.
