News stories about sexual assault and harassment have dominated the media for months now. Numerous incidents have centered on hostile workplace conditions and illegal or inappropriate behavior by high profile individuals.  

It's not surprising that companies, including engineering firms, are evaluating their risks, reviewing their policies prohibiting sexual harassment, and implementing training programs to sensitize employees to the issues, and prevent sexual harassment.

Join our panel of speakers to learn how to create a professional and respectful work environment and a culture that discourages and eliminates sexual harassment. You'll identify the elements of an effective policy prohibiting sexual harassment, examine options for training, and explore various hypothetical situations to gauge your own awareness.


  • Examine the laws, regulations and guidelines concerning sexual harassment
  • Understand what constitutes sexual harassment in order to identify and address it
  • Examine how the EEOC Guidelines are applied and enforced, and how your firm can be held liable for harassment by supervisors and non-supervisory employees
  • Identify the benefits of having an strong policy against sexual harassment and a related effective training program for staff
  • Apply key principles from these learning objectives to situations that may arise in the workplace
