Register / View: Brewers Association – Preventing Sexual Harassment Part 1: The Basics
Recent conversations around sexual harassment and gender-based violence in the craft brewing community continue to underscore the fact that to build a flourishing and inclusive brewing community, breweries, distributors, retailers, event organizers, and all businesses within the industry must be safe places that encourage respect, empowerment, and freedom from harassment or discrimination of any kind.
As a next step towards this shared vision, the Brewers Association will host a three-part sexual harassment prevention webinar series for Brewers Association members and their employees. The seminars will be led by Nikki Larchar, co-founder of Define the LineOpens in new window.
Webinar attendees will learn what sexual harassment is and how it shows up in the craft brewing industry. With help from Define the Line, business leaders and community members will explore how to build harassment-free workplaces, what it means to go from bystander to ally, and the best practices and procedures to have in place to prevent harassment. Participants will craft an action plan and learn how to handle a complaint and what an investigation process looks like.
Founded in 2017, Define the Line has partnered with organizations to eliminate workplace sexual harassment through interactive training sessions and conversations about what it means to speak up, define your line, and create positive change.
