Sexual Harassment and Discrimination - Since 2004, the Employment Practices Office has been conducting training on sexual harassment prevention and UW Regulation 1-5, which outlines UW's antidiscrimination policy. The 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 2012 may need to attend a refresher course. The requirement to attend a training session is important for two reasons:
You can now register for a session on your own by logging into WyoWeb and opening UW Employee Self-Service, then 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.
We also have an advanced session available! 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.
If you have problems registering, please call or email our office (x3459). Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Trainings are currently scheduled for the following dates and times:
