Respectful Workplaces in the Arts
The Cultural Human Resource Council of Canada has collaborated with 11 trainers across the country to support efforts in addressing all kinds of harassment in arts and culture workplaces (including sexual harassment bullying, discrimination and violence).
Let Dr. Terri-Lynn Brennan explore with you and your organization how to best deal with harassment situations through:
discussions of what IS and IS NOT a respectful workplace;
a review of situations and scenarios to identify how to create and sustain a respectful workplace; and
an in-depth consideration of the roles of both employers and artists and cultural workers in establishing and maintaining a respectful workplace.
This Respectful Workplaces in the Arts workshop will cover province/territory-specific legislation and propose some tools and tips for employers, artists and cultural workers, to create and maintain a respectful workplace. The workshop will be 3 hours in length and best suits a group of 15 to 20 participants. Note: This is not a policy development or counselling session, nor is legal advice provided.
"The session (Respectful Workplaces Workshop) was well received; your workshop style fostered an open and trusting environment for the participants to share information and develop strategies that they could use in the workplace or in their personal life."
