Canada’s Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) is supporting efforts to address all kinds of harassment in arts workplaces (including sexual harassment bullying, discrimination and violence), and to lay the groundwork for “respectful workplaces” as the norm in the cultural sector.
Under the Respectful Workplaces in the Arts (RWA) banner (www.respectfulartsworkplaces.ca), CHRC’s Maintaining Respectful Workplaces workshops have been created to explore how to best deal with harassment situations through:
- discussions of what IS and IS NOT a respectful workplace
- a review of situations and scenarios to identify how to create and sustain a respectful workplace
- an in-depth consideration of the roles of both employers and artists and cultural workers in establishing and maintaining a respectful workplace
In this three-hour workshop, tools and tips, including province/territory-specific legislation, will be highlighted for both employers and artists and cultural workers to create and maintain a respectful workplace.
Did you know that as of Jan 1, 2020, all employers in Newfoundland and Labrador are required to “participate in training relating to harassment prevention,” as per section 24.2 (1) of the recently amended OHS Regulations. This workshop qualifies under the Act. Visit WorkplaceNL to learn more.
