- RECOMMENDED FOR MANAGERS & EMPLOYEES -
Employers have a responsibility to maintain a work environment that is free from all discrimination and harassment for all employees. This training seeks to bridge the gap between myth and fact regarding issues pertaining to gender and sexual orientation in the workplace. Typically, discriminatory behaviors and attitudes are rooted in fear and lack of knowledge. During this workshop/seminar, participants will explore why we fear that which is different and look at alternatives to fear and intolerance by engaging in meaningful dialogue and activities designed to dispel myths of people who are perceived differently.
