The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) project, Respectful Workplaces in the Arts, addresses harassment in the workplace, including sexual harassment, bullying, discrimination and violence. As a part of this initiative, this workshop will ensure that artists and arts organizations across Canada have the tools, resources and training to prevent harassment of any kind, and build respectful workplaces as the norm in the cultural sector.

CHRC’s Maintaining Respectful Workplaces workshops are 3 hours in length and adapted to the audience, whether they be employers, workers, artists or a mixed group of 12 – 24 participants. For this first pilot year, a limited number of trainers’ professional fees is being generously covered by the Department of Canadian Heritage allowing us to offer this workshop at a significantly discounted rate for creatives and cultural workers.
