Do you supervise full- or part-time employees at UW? Are you faculty? Equal Opportunity Report and Response (EORR) conducts training on sexual harassment/discrimination prevention and UW Regulation 1-5, which outlines UW's nondiscrimination policy. Please note, this is different from the “Sexual Misconduct and the Duty to Report” training required for all employees. The in-person training is mandatory every 3 years for managers and supervisors, including all faculty, and has been well received by those who have already attended. Employees who attended training of this type prior to 2013 may need to attend a refresher course. The requirement to attend a training session is important for two reasons:
UW is committed to ensuring that the workplace environment across campus conforms to the policies contained in UW Regulation 1-5; that is, one that is free of discrimination and sexual harassment.
Under current law, the University may be liable for the actions of its managers and supervisors if they have not had proper training regarding UW's policies prohibiting sexual harassment/discrimination and if they do not take appropriate and immediate action to prevent or correct prohibited behavior.
You can now register for a session on your own by logging into WyoWeb and opening UW Employee Self-Service, then go to Courses and Conferences. You can view the entire course schedule or search for the course you want to take. There will likely be more than one page of courses available, so use the arrows at the top of the list to view more options. Click on the “Add to Cart” icon to sign up. Please remember that even though the course is free, you must “Check Out” before the registration is complete. After you “Check Out,” you will receive an email confirming your registration, as well as a reminder a few days before the course. Remember, managers and supervisors are required to attend "Sexual Harassment Prevention" as opposed to the online offerings for non-supervisory staff.

Have you already attended our basic session but it's time to renew your training requirement? Do you want to experience something different than before? Then this advanced course is for you. Focused entirely on case studies, participants will apply the concepts and UW policies/procedures learned in the original session. You will practice resolving sensitive issues in a dynamic and non-threatening group environment. Be prepared to actively participate in this engaging and educational session designed to further develop your supervisory and management skills. You can retake the original session, but if you're looking for something new and different, CALL JIM.

Equal Opportunity Report and Response has developed a diversity session that is available to all of campus as well as community partners. "Putting People First: The Wyoming Way" is not what you typically think of when you hear "diversity." The session is engaging, fun, and interactive. Our dynamic session uses conversation, music, and humor to have an honest discussion about why diversity is important, how it affects us all, and how everyone is diverse. We don't focus on what you should or shouldn't say, political correctness, or blaming people for previous biases. The session is usually two hours, though a longer, more in-depth session is also available for staff retreats, etc. Please call 766-5200 or email if you are interested in a session or have any questions!
