Out & Equal’s Training Department host a free monthly webinar Town Call on a current LGBT topic. These calls cover a wide range of topic and are also based on feedback we receive from our webinar participants. You can find the past Town Calls and register for upcoming Town Calls here. Each month we will post links to Town Call recordings here once they are done for you to use as a resource and to give you the opportunity to lend your voice to the conversations.
Harassed in the workplace? Lessons from Schoolyard Bullying!
Thursday, May 31, 2012 – 12 pm Pacific Time
1 pm Mountain | 2 pm Central | 3 pm Eastern
Workplace Bullying is repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons by one or more perpetrators. We’ve heard lots of public discussion about bullying in the schoolyard but what about the harassment that employees face on the job. Bullying includes verbal abuse, offensive conduct/behaviors, and work interference. This can happen anywhere and impacts everyone in the workplace. Come join Dr. David Hall, author and professor, and Melissa Regan, award-winning filmmaker and founder of NoDumbQuestions.org, as they provide highlights of their recent Out & Equal University course ‘What Would You do if….going from spectator to ally when bullying occurs’. This town call will provide tools and insights on what bullying looks like and what you can do, as an individual or company, to create programs and awareness in the workplace and in your communities.
