Workplace sexual harassment prevention/leadership training
Since the emergence of the #MeToo movement, small and large companies have endeavored to reexamine their prevention policies, procedures, and programs. The most forward-looking companies are those that focus on fostering healthy and equitable workplace environments – rather than reacting after the fact or seeing these as incident-based disciplinary issues.
MVP Strategies offers some of the best and most innovative workplace sexual harassment prevention and leadership training available today. The training is designed for all employees, but MVP Strategies is especially renowned for its success in conducting workshops in which men are fully engaged, and from which they emerge with new ideas about how they can play a constructive role in improving workplace culture.
There is no PowerPoint! Senior MVP Strategies trainers conduct highly interactive workplace sexual harassment prevention training for a range of employees, including C-Suite executives, managers and company personnel at every level of white and blue-collar workforces.
The training can be customized according to a company’s needs, but the overall focus is on the role that everyone in a workplace – from leadership to entry-level hires — can play in creating a healthy and non-abusive environment.
Special attention is paid to the role of “bystanders,” and the ways in which colleagues and co-workers can head off, interrupt and challenge biased and harassing behaviors before, during, or after the fact.
The MVP Strategies approach is and always has been intersectional; trainings include discussions about the ways in which 21st century workplaces that are ethnically and racially diverse — as well as gender and sexually diverse — can address issues related to this diversity in an empowering and helpful manner.
The style of the trainings is highly interactive, with an emphasis on dialogue and active participation. This educational practice is in marked contrast to more traditional sexual harassment trainings, which often address the issue by focusing mainly on legal definitions and compliance with company policy.
