!Basta! Working Together to Prevent Sexual Harassment in the Agricultural Workplace
Summary: Workplace sexual harassment (WSH) in agriculture is a persistent and pervasive problem that threatens employees’ safety and well-being and damages organizational climate and trajectory. Until recently, tailored trainings about WSH and resources specific to the agricultural sector and its audiences were lacking. Over the past several years, researchers and partners with the Pacific Northwest Agriculture Safety and Health (PNASH) Center in Washington State have worked with a number of agricultural and industry stakeholders (e.g. farmworkers, growers, government leaders and agencies, legal experts, advocates, etc.), to explore the nature of WSH and to develop relative education, resources, and training.
While education alone will not stop WSH, it’s an important strategy in a multi-faceted approach to prevention. In this webinar, participants will be introduced to The Basta! Prevent Sexual Harassment in Agriculture training, toolkit, and video. The Basta! training uses an evidence-based, community-engaged approach to help employees, HR staff, and growers prevent and address sexual harassment in the agricultural workplace.
