Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

The CRTC's sexual harassment prevention training (SHPT) is temporarily suspended due to the new Title IX regulations. All mandatory trainings regarding sexual violence and sexual harassment will resume in September 2020.

The CRTC will assign and invite new employees to participate in mandatory trainings as they become available. 

Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action Training

Multiple federal and state civil rights laws require that all job applicants be provided with an equal opportunity to seek employment at Western. Affirmative action regulations likewise require that search committees engage in proactive efforts to build diverse applicant pools for staff positions. This training explores what these requirements mean in practice as we conduct searches for both classified staff, and professional staff positions. Professional staff and faculty search committees are required to receive training prior to the evaluation of candidates. Classified staff and student employee search committees can request a training to meet their needs. EO & AA training is currently provided in an online format and is made available in Western's Training Portal.
