April Chapter Meeting 2018 (PD Session):  
Harassment Today: What We Don't Know We Don't Know
 Presented by: Mauricio Velasquez, MBA
President/CEO, The Diversity Training Group

"This is one of the hottest topics going.  There is so much misinformation out there.  What is sexual harassment, what is general harassment.  

  • Legal and practical definitions will be provided.  
  • The psychology of harassment will be presented.  
  • Dos and Don’ts - Best and Worst Practices will be discussed.  
  • Themes and trends will be presented.  
  • We will build a tool kit, a skill kit – how to respond (not react) to harassment.  
  • How to anticipate, get out in front of these emerging issues before they swamp the boat.  
So many people tell me “I had no idea I was harassing…” or “I did not mean to…” and I will show you how to deal with these dynamics – personally/professionally and organizationally. This will be a highly interactive, participant-centered workshop."
