A professional sexual harassment awareness and prevention training  is designed to:

  1. Help prevent expensive and damaging lawsuits.
  2. Improve workplace morale and reduce turnover.
  3. Position you more favorably with mediators, should one of your employees make a claim of sexual harassment. 
  4. Reduce the annual renewal cost of your Employment Practices Liability Insurance premium.
  5. Send a strong message to your employees that you care about an ethical, harmonious and safe workplace.
We talk about how many women were raped last year, not about how many men raped women. We talk about how many girls in a school district were harassed last year, not about how many boys harassed girls. So you can see how the use of the passive voice has a political effect. [It] shifts the focus off of men and boys and onto women.
