Under the Respectful Workplaces in the Arts banner (respectfulartsworkplaces.ca), the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) announces two training videos on workplace harassment in the arts: one for employers – including Boards of Directors of not-for-profit organizations; and one for cultural workers – including self-employed artists, contractors and employees.
These animated videos on ‘responding to harassment’ are scenario-based. They have been produced to explain the rights and responsibilities of employers with respect to reports of workplace harassment; and to explain the rights and responsibilities of cultural workers who experience or witness harassment. They come with practical takeaways and best practices to recognize and navigate incidents of harassment from both points of view (employer and worker), and include a questionnaire to test the learner’s recall of the videos’ content.
These and several other resources on the respectfulartsworkplaces.ca website, will be immensely helpful to employers and workers alike who are committed to eliminating harassment and ensuring respectful and safe workplaces in the arts.
“Respectful Workplaces in the Arts is a national campaign to build a sector-wide culture of fairness, dignity and respect. Let’s work together to shape safe and healthy work environments, free from all forms of harassment.”
