Sexual harassment is defined as any unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. It can also be harassment based on a person’s sex.
It is estimated that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men have experienced sexual harassment at work, and up to 70% of victims do not report incidents out of fear. It is critical that everyone recognizes the type of behaviors that could be considered sexual harassment, learns how to respond, and understands how they can help prevent it from occurring.
Using a variety of case studies, scenario-based interactions, 3D characters and an interactive branching activity, learners will be able to recognize what behaviors are considered sexual harassment and how victims and bystanders can respond.
The course describes the internal and external complaint processes available to victims who have been sexually harassed and their rights under law.
