New York recently legislated sweeping sexual harassment prevention training requirements and more states are sure to follow. The growing realization is that yesterday’s training has not worked to shape much-needed change within corporate cultures, and we must address that fact. This session re-examines training content, instructional methods, organizational structures and grievance reporting procedures. It explores the requisite skills you need, and the tough decisions you will have to make, to comprehensively address workplace harassment, discrimination and bullying. 


  • Identify the training content that informs a candid discussion of gender, power and sexual dynamics in the workplace. 

  • Recognize effective instructional structures, methods and communications designed to ensure senior leadership buy-in and support. 

  • Describe the powerful role that bystander engagement training can play in creating a proactive response to avoiding harassment and abusive conduct. 

  • Review the revised grievance and investigation procedures that can effectively address the chilling fear of retaliation among complainants, while diminishing concerns of HR bias in favor of executive leadership.
