Rapid demographic change over the last 70 years has made the modern workplace an intersection of diverse personalities, passions, and experiences. Understanding the laws that protect us from harassment and discrimination at work is a vital aspect of maintaining a safe and productive environment. This course uses engaging interactions, simple language, and real cases to de-mystify what can be a challenging regulatory landscape. Intersections was developed in collaboration with a team of legal experts to ensure that the content exceeds compliance with requisite legal standards that allow employees and supervisors to recognize, respond to, and report problematic behaviors.
The branching video experience gives learners the opportunity to navigate a challenging situation, such as a student reporting an incident of sexual assault. By providing a glimpse into the consequences of various responses, this interaction trains higher ed faculty and staff to handle a potentially fraught conversation effectively and with compassion.
For employers in California and Connecticut who need to meet the two-hour training requirement, the course features a timer and the SkillGarden, where learners can explore skill areas such as resolving conflicts or hiring employees while avoiding illegal discrimination.
