Why is this important?
CMU is committed to developing a caring and supportive culture for our students, faculty and staff. At CMU, we take care of each other. We watch what is happening around us, notice potentially dangerous or serious situations, and respond - whether that means speaking up, stopping someone, or contacting the appropriate authorities or services. In order to accomplish that, we want to ensure that you are a part of this dialogue so you are prepared to continue the conversation that starts with the online training course.
Discrimination, harassment, and violence can affect all of us. This training will help provide you with the tools to help promote a workplace free of harassment, discrimination, and sexual and gender-based misconduct, as well as discuss your responsibilities under Title IX. The trainings will help all employees recognize harassment and sexual misconduct, and provide practical tips on creating a safe, inclusive environment. The training also includes safe and positive options for bystander intervention, inclusive language for the workplace, and the nature of macroaggressions.
In addition, anyone taking classes or working at CMU is protected under Title IX, so even if you are well-versed in discussions of sex and gender equity, it is still important for you to know your rights as a member of our community. For these reasons, the training is being offered to all CMU faculty and staff, including student employees and graduate assistants.
