Good, Better, Best: Creating Safe Respectful Cultures Through Competence & Compassion
Date: TBD
New York, New York

This program focuses on policies, procedures and training, going beyond narrow legal compliance to create safe respectful workplace cultures. Our approach encourages internal and external stakeholders to attend – senior staff, board, and volunteers. By its completion, you will have reviewed your policies, updated your knowledge, and started down the road of creating effective procedures for implementation at your school.

This program was designed and is being presented by Fran Sepler, whom the EEOC selected to design their national Respect in the Workplace training. This program will combine a workshop, training, and time for small group work with your colleagues.  The all-inclusive cost per organization to participate is $350.
