The Human Resources Association of Treasure Valley is pleased to present the November program, "Rethinking Harassment Prevention: Lessons from Fox News, Uber, Sterling Jewelers and More… ," presented by Bobbi K. Dominick, JD, SPHR, SHRM-SCP.
In June 2016, after an 18 month study, the EEOC called on organizations to “reboot” their harassment prevention efforts. This presentation will look at what led the EEOC to offer this challenge, and why social science research and the lived experiences of human resource professionals should encourage every organization to re-examine their efforts to prevent harassment and discrimination in the workplace. We will look at how culture and leadership affect prevention efforts, how respectful workplace and diversity and inclusion principles should affect our response, how training can impact prevention, and what we can do to encourage any needed changes. We will look at what types of systemic changes might be needed, including policy and process changes, vulnerable workplaces, accountability, and investigative processes. The goal of this presentation is to encourage HR professionals to look critically at their own prevention systems, and begin a strategic process of making needed changes to establish an effective prevention system.
