About the event

The upcoming Worker Protection Act brings a change in emphasis from raising awareness about sexual harassment to trying to prevent it from happening in the first place. This creates an opportunity for employers to make a real difference to their workplace culture. But how do you create impactful programmes of work that stand a chance of genuinely reducing the prevalence of sexual harassment? 

Join psychologist Dr Nina Burrowes for this 90 minute webinar in which she'll share her expertise in using organisational culture to create a workplace environment where sexual harassment is identified, challenged, managed and ultimately prevented. 

During this webinar we will discuss:

  • The difference between 'raising awareness' of sexual harassment and 'prevention' of sexual harassment
  • Why any efforts to prevent sexual harassment need to be based on an understanding of why and how harassment happens in the first place
  • Why culture will indeed eat your policies for breakfast
  • How do sexual harassers use company culture to their advantage and what can you do about it?
  • The importance of senior buy-in 
  • How can you empower members of staff to notice and challenge behaviour?
  • How can you create a workplace culture that supports reporting of harassment?
  • The importance of working in ways that are trauma informed and sensitive to members of staff who have lived experience of sexual harm
  • The importance of empowering managers to respond to incidents of sexual harassment appropriately
  • How can you feel confident in investigation processes when reports of harassment are made?
  • The importance of supporting staff who are responsible for driving and delivering this change in the workplace

This is a strategic session that will be suitable for anyone who has any responsibility for the way in which their organisation prevents or responds to sexual harassment. The webinar will cover a lot of ground and will be a great place for those of you who want to have a sense of where your organisations is right now and what the path ahead might look like. 

Bring your questions and your curiosity - both will be very welcome. 

The format of this webinar will be a 45-60 minute presentation from Nina, followed by 45-30 minutes for your questions and discussion.

The webinar will take place on Zoom. Links to the Zoom event will be sent to you nearer the time of the webinar. If you have any questions please contact us

Feedback from people attending our workplace sexual harassment prevention training:

This was a super-engaging training. Sexual harassment can be a difficult and awkward topic but the training was perfectly balanced.

I always felt confident that I would take action if I saw Sexual Harassment, but I was unsure if the action I would take would be appropriate. After this training I am now confident my action would be correct.

I wish training like this was normal in all workplaces
