Respect in the Workplace

Learn to understand and value diversity in the workplace.


This workshop uses respect as a platform for understanding the broader concept of diversity and incorporates important information on how to change a culture and implement changes in their workplace. Participants review the laws that prevent harassment including sexual harassment.   Participants will leave with the tools necessary to implement a plan of action for their desired respectful workplace vision.

This dynamic half-day process integrates four major themes – Awareness, Behavior, Respect and Change – into a coherent and thought-provoking experience where participants explore the benefits of respectful behaviors in their personal and professional lives.


There are no prerequisites for this class.
