Essentials of Sexual Harassment Awareness Training

Header image

Sexual harassment remains the most prevalent form of harassment in the workplace, partly due to many common misconceptions about what sexual harassment is. The Essentials of Sexual Harassment Awareness online training module provides staff with indispensable knowledge about what behaviours constitute can sexual harassment, why it is an important issue, and how it can be recognised and avoided. The training is aimed at all levels of an organisation, and is designed to educate those who may be at risk of becoming offenders as well as potential recipients of unwanted behaviour. Sexual harassment education for all staff should be at the forefront of your organisation’s efforts to provide a workplace that is free of sexual harassment.

Please note: for managers and supervisors, or those in higher-risk situations, we strongly recommend our comprehensive Sexual Harassment Awareness course.
