In a 2019 Monster survey, 90 per cent of employees said they had experienced bullying in the workplace. The Pew Research Center reports that 69 per cent of women say they have been sexually harassed in a professional setting. These numbers point to a serious problem that leaders can’t afford to ignore.
Policies and training are, of course, critical to the prevention of bullying and harassment, but there are other avenues that you may not have considered. Diversity and inclusion have benefits that go far beyond compliance. Not only do companies that embrace diversity and inclusion outperform those that don’t, but understanding, accepting and valuing differences ensures a fairer, more collaborative environment with less conflict.
Join Catherine Mattice-Zundel, president of Civility Partners, a training and consulting firm focused on helping organizations build positive workplace cultures, as she explores strategies for using diversity and inclusion to prevent harassment and bullying.
The webinar will cover:
- What constitutes bullying and harassment in the workplace
- Best practices for addressing and preventing bullying and harassment
- How diversity and inclusion helps to reduce bullying and harassment
- How to achieve diversity and inclusion
- Case studies of how bullying, inequities and harassment tie together, and how resolving one requires resolving all
