Harassment and Discrimination Prevention (Supervisor) (255027-11207)

This course is designed to help supervisors address inappropriate behavior before it creates a “hostile work environment.” It gives supervisors the skills necessary to reduce potential legal risks by recognizing and addressing abusive behavior and other misconduct, including microaggressions and unconscious bias, which may lead to workplace bullying or hostility, reducing productivity and creativity. The training invites supervisors to consider the nature of harassment and discrimination and provides practical tips on creating a safe, inclusive environment for work, including safe and positive options for bystander intervention.

Managing Bias (255036-14308)

This course trains faculty and staff that understanding bias in the workplace is the first step to managing it.  Biases can affect our actions, which can have real impacts on people.
