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 harassment in arts and culture workplaces (including sexual harassment, violence, bullying, and discrimination).

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 responsibilities which employers, artists and cultural workers need to consider in establishing and maintaining a respectful workplace.

"As arts organizations move forward in becoming an effective ally during this period of Truth and Reconciliation, Dr. Brennan’s expertise is invaluable and we are grateful for the foundation she gave the staff to move forward more confidently."
