New Online Course for UW Employees on Harassment, Discrimination

February 19, 2018

University of Wyoming employees have an opportunity to participate in new, high-quality, evidence-based, online employee training courses.

UW’s offices of Student Affairs, General Counsel, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are partnering with the education technology company EVERFI to launch the new courses. EVERFI is helping over 1,700 colleges and universities enhance compliance and employee professional development, and is already the provider for student trainings such as AlcoholEDU and Haven.

The first of the new EVERFI courses offered at UW is “Harassment and Discrimination Prevention,” which will replace the current online course of “Sexual Misconduct and the Duty to Report.”

As with the previous version, the new course is required for all UW employees and must be completed within 90 days of hire. Employees who have already had some version of this training will not be immediately required to complete the new course.

The course, in both supervisor and nonsupervisor versions, teaches employees to identify and eliminate workplace harassment and discrimination based on “protected characteristics” by helping employees understand the law and respond to misconduct appropriately.

“This evidence-based course will strengthen our commitment to the prevention of sexual misconduct at the University of Wyoming,” says Janean Forsyth Lefevre, EEO and diversity specialist in the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Employees who are assigned this course, such as new employees and those who have not taken the previous course, will receive an email from UW Online Training with a link to the EVERFI portal. Employees then need to sign in using their UW credentials to complete the course.

For questions or more information, visit the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’s training page, email diversity@uwyo.edu, or call 766-3459.
