GLADC Lunch and Learn “Preventing and Addressing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace” Wed, 14 Mar 2018 23:30:02 +0000 At a moment when many organizations are re-examining their policies and practices around sexual harassment, this presentation will provide up-to-date information on best practices to address sexual harassment in the workplace, what to avoid, and even better, how we can move beyond response and toward prevention.

Join GLADC for a Lunch and Learn presentation that explores the role of company policy, training, structure, and culture as they relate to sexual harassment.  Our presenter, Dr. Terry Glenn Lilley of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Dept. of UWL, will be joined by several students working on sexual harassment prevention.
