Employee Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Training - Welcome Page Image

Duration: Approximately 2 Hours

Description: This course trains employees to recognize, prevent, and respond to workplace harassment and discrimination based on “protected characteristics.” The course also helps employees address inappropriate behavior before it creates a “hostile work environment” by giving employees the skills necessary to reduce potential legal risks by recognizing and addressing abusive behavior and other misconduct, including microaggressions and unconscious bias, that may lead to workplace bullying or hostility, reducing productivity and creativity.

Harassment and Discrimination Prevention invites employees to consider the nature of harassment and discrimination, and provides practical tips on creating a safe, inclusive environment for work, including safe and positive options for bystander intervention.

Part I provides employees with a learning experience that is driven by narratives and immersive interactions. These interactive exercises engage employees with realistic situations and tasks, and cover all aspects of an employee’s role in promoting a harassment and discrimination free workplace.

In Part II: Protecting Students, employees are trained in how to identify and report sexual and interpersonal misconduct against students, covering awareness and prevention subjects required by Section 304(a)(5) of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (known as the “Campus SaVE Act”), as well as Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972. In addition, as required by the Campus SaVE Act, the course includes summaries of the legal definitions of consent, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, and provides copies of the relevant statutes for Hawaii.

Student Online Training FAQs

Dear Student,

As a member of the University of Hawaiʻi (UH) community, your safety and well-being are our highest priority. The University of Hawaiʻi is committed to addressing issues of sex- and gender-based violence. The instances, contributing factors, and lasting effects of gender-based violence do not exist in a vacuum. In this regard, the entire university community must work together to cultivate and sustain a safe environment in which all members can live, work, and learn safely.

Students, as well as our entire community have important roles to play by being aware of the issues, watching out for one another and reporting violations. I encourage everyone, if you have not already, to take the free, online student training program regarding sex- and gender-based violence.

The EverFi training program is part of a university-wide approach to educate the University community on everyone’s rights and available resources. We hope this training will assist you in understanding your rights under the law and the University Policy & Procedure on Sex Discrimination & Gender-Based Violence. I also encourage you to explore the additional resources available to you on the UH System Title IX & Office of Institutional Equity website

Some of the materials covered in this training course may remind you of upsetting experiences that you, a friend, or family member may have gone through. Please know that you can stop the training at any time, and there are many University and community resources available to you for support, such as counseling, victim advocacy, and legal support.

If you have experienced gender-based harassment or violence, there are several options available depending on the type of assistance you want:
