Sexual harassment has been a problem of the workforce since people have been working together. At the same time, the world is rapidly shifting as we all aim to address issues of inequality and to eradicate discrimination harassment. These new levels of awareness mean that expectations have shifted.
Employees are looking to work for places that are working to promote a safer work environment in several different ways. It is no longer acceptable to host meaningless training or check some sort of compliance box. Guests are now looking for companies who value humans -- all humans. They want to work with and support companies who know how to keep their communities both physically and emotionally safe.
Further, harassment in the workplace is a serious area of concern that can and does progress beyond harassment and into criminal behavior. It can be a liability to ignore criminal conduct by supervisors, employees, or even guests. We can apply a trauma informed, healing centered paradigm to create a safe and healthy work environment. In this presentation, we will discuss the dynamics of harassment, when it becomes criminal and how to respond.

About the A-DASH Collaborative
We are river and training professionals collaboratively inspiring and supporting organizations to eliminate workplace discrimination and harassment through policy assessment, training and organizational change. Our name A-DASH (Anti-Discrimination and Sexual Harassment) reflects the group’s focus on a behavior and culture commonly accepted and tolerated in many organizations. This focus does not diminish the importance of the larger or other equity issues, but instead seeks to create a fine point on this area as part of a portfolio of tools and methods available to organization leaders.
The A-DASH Collaborative knows rivers, for we work on them for those who work on them. We are educators, trainers, business owners and non-profit leaders. Our Collaborative includes representatives from River Management Society, National Park Service, Arizona Raft Adventures, Nantahala Outdoor Center, Engage Coaching and Consulting, Strand Squared Solutions. and Respect Outside.
