5 New Ways to Improve Your
Harassment Training in 2017

w/ Phyllis Cheng and
Patti Perez









The EEOC task force reported in June that corporate harassment training has generally not changed workforce behavior.

The headlines continue to show a flurry of workplace harassment situations. And to cap it off, many employees regard corporate harassment training as a “check the box” activity without connecting the training to corporate values.

Maximize your ROI on your harassment training investment and get positive employee relations as well as compliance.

Join our panel of experts as we discuss 5 new approaches to creating effective programs.

Panelists include Patti Perez, Council member of the California Fair Employment and Housing Council (FEHC), which issued new AB 1825 regulations on sexual harassment training; Phyllis Cheng, former Director of the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), which enforces anti-harassment laws and partners with the EEOC; and Janine Yancey, the Founder and CEO of Emtrain.

Our panel of experts will discuss:

  • creating ongoing program vs one time check the box compliance initiative
  • showing the nuances of situations; people are rarely all bad or all good
  • encouraging and facilitating a two-way dialog with ability to course correct
  • providing a channel for anonymous feedback and concerns
  • using data as actionable business intelligence to identify hotspots and prioritize issues
  • Patti, Phyllis, and Janine will also be doing a live Q&A following the webinar. This webinar qualifies for HRCI and MCLE (CA) credit.
