SmartCulture® sexual harassment prevention training for leaders
Sexual harassment in the workplace continues to be serious problem within many Australian workplaces. The Australian Human Rights Commission National Inquiry on Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces (March 2020) found that it is still everywhere, in every industry, at every level.
Raising awareness and education is fundamental in preventing sexual harassment. We focus on the importance of great leadership, a positive safe culture, avoiding victimisation and empowering bystanders to support affected persons.
About this course
This premium half-day course was developed for leaders by WHS + culture industry expert Karen Maher. It is designed to deepen their understanding of sexual harassment, strengthen approaches around responding to concerns and ultimately work towards effective prevention of this serious issue.
This course is created in alignment with our SmartCulture® solution – developed based on years of research, cases and best practice in these key risk areas – with 5 components – safety, measurable, awareness, respect and team. It focuses on the importance of great leadership and being proactive, providing your leaders with the necessary awareness and knowledge to work at preventing and managing concerns appropriately at their respective levels in your organisation. It covers the potential consequences for both individuals and your organisation if things go ‘wrong’ and how to avoid this happening. Importantly, the course will also be tailored to align with your organisation’s policies and procedures and explain what an individual can do if they are concerned about behaviours at work.
FAQs, Topics Covered & Assessment
This course covers all of the foundation information on workplace sexual harassment and then adds an important leadership layer across the top. It covers what to do if you or a team member has a concern, how as a leader to respond to a concern, key duties and prevention strategies.
