All employees are required to take the web-based course, "Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Prevention." Equal opportunity officers are responsible for providing new
employees with an overview of the EO program at their agency. Each agency handles this in different ways.
Sexual Harassment Training
All employees are required to take the web-based course, "Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Prevention." EO officers for some agencies also conduct the sexual harassment
awareness and prevention training for their agency's employees.
The OA-Human Resources' Equal Employment Opportunity Division provides the required sexual
harassment training for supervisors and managers through the commonwealth's
Keystone Academy for Learning
. Because supervisors and managers are the first
line of recourse for victims of harassment, the training given to them differs from the training given to non-management employees.
The following materials can be utilized for training: Employee Training Materials
Training for Equal Opportunity Officers
All new equal opportunity officers are given an orientation from OA-Human Resources’ Equal Employment Opportunity Division.
In addition, the bureau has developed a series of webinars designed to increase the knowledge of the EEO community. The webinars are available in LSO (located under "My Training" at www.myworkplace.state.pa.us
) and can be found by entering key words “EEO Exchange” in the Search Term box on that site.
The bureau also hosts periodic trainings and webinars throughout
the year. If you are interested in receiving particular EEO training, call 717.783.1130.
