Sexual Harassment Training for the
Post-#MeToo-Movement Era

We live in a world where sexual assault and harassment allegations are all over the news and our social media feeds. Women’s voices are finally being heard, still most work places still don’t know how to handle sexual misconduct. Let us help you.

Funky Feminist has designed a non-shaming sexual harassment training that allows for healthy discourse between employees, supervisors, and executives. Our training is unique because it goes over the legal side of sexual harassment, workplace culture, and break-out sessions.

What does the law say about sexual harassment?

In the Funky Feminist Sexual Harassment training, we dive into Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the two federal laws that specifically address sexual harassment. Both titles impact how workplaces and colleges handle sexual misconduct allegations.

We know working through legal jargon can be confusing which is why we break down the titles so that they are accessible to everyone in the room, regardless of educational or career background. Funky Feminist has got you covered.

The training will walk attendees through:

  • What Constitutes Sexual Harassment

  • Reporting

  • Investigating

  • Consequences

  • Follow-up

  • Mandatory Reporting

Deconstructing Sexism in the workplace

We have a problem…and it is our culture. For far too long, women have been called “crazy,” “too sensitive,” and a plethora of other adjectives simply because they call out the abuse they face. Unfortunately, sexism and sexual harassment are incredibly tied together. For Funky Feminist, you cannot talk about one without the other.

In this portion of the training, we define:

  • Personal Space

  • Boundaries

  • Language

Using these definitions, we then give helpful ways to combat sexism in the workplace and be more than just a bystander.

After we discuss the law and the culture, now it is time for the attendees to work through situations in small groups. We will assign each group a specific scenario. For about ten minutes, the attendees will discuss what they should do if they knew or were a part of the situation.

We will reconvene as a group and discuss what the small groups decided they would do, offering suggestions and praise respectively.
