STTAR gets U.S. funds for workplace sensitivity training
The Columbia-based Sexual Trauma Treatment, Advocacy and Recovery (STTAR) Center Inc. has received funding through the federal Violence Against Women Act to provide training on dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace.
The training will include the definition of sexual harassment, steps to take when being harassed, the consequences of harassing behavior and the liability of management in cases of sexual harassment.
The center, a nonprofit agency providing services to victims of sexual crimes, will also provide sensitivity training to help employees who have sexually harassed co-workers change their behavior.
The training is free, but tax-deductible donations will be accepted.
