How it Works

How it Works - Anti-Sexual Harassment Training Course

Flexible and accessible.

Anti-sexual harassment training is designed to be highly experiential while also offering flexibility to bring our expertise to your organization.

Interactive sessions.

Our 2-hour interactive, workshop-style sessions include discussion, Q&A, peer coaching, exercises, workbooks, and presentations. We can deliver the workshops in-person or via webinar for up to 25 participants.

Ongoing communication.

Inspire will communicate with your HR team to share major updates that are released from your state or the federal government. We also engage your leadership team with talking points and support to transform strategy into action.

Manager Workshop

In the Manager Workshop, we highlight the role a manager plays in preventing and handling issues that impact employees and professional relationships. The session provides a framework of legal and inclusive behaviors that managers can use to create a safe and inclusive culture in their teams and organizations.

Employee Workshop

In the Employee Workshop, participants leave with a renewed sense of how to engage with their colleagues and an awareness of how their behavior impacts their teams and individual careers. All employees build an understanding of the issues, gain insight on policies and reporting processes, and contribute their ideas and thought leadership on a key issue.

Are in-person trainings right for your team?

Many organizations use online tools for anti-harassment training for all employees. Blending e-learning with in-person workshops deepens your employees’ knowledge, understanding, and retention of important information and actions. The Inspire anti-harassment workshops are:

  • Based on what works in real life. Our content was organically developed out of what we found to create the most consistent, high-impact results across diverse industries and management styles. It’s a proven approach that’s been refined over time.
  • Experiential, practical and built for busy professionals. The sessions include exercises that make every concept applicable during moment-to-moment challenges in everyday life.
  • A hybrid of management skills and legal knowledge. We do the foundational work on legal topics, internal policies, and reporting processes. Then we move on to the skills training in areas like communication and management.

Participants can truly use their newly acquired skills because they’ll also have the mindset, approach, and understanding of the tools and techniques to deal with issues of harassment.
