Executive Certification in Sexual Harassment prevention and workplace diversity:
why is it relevant for you?

Can you help an organization to tackle broader workplace-harassment issues?

Can you help an organization to implement a gender-neutral framework to tackle workplace-harassment? 

Workplace-related laws like the anti-sexual harassment laws are being introduced in India with the objective of creating better workplaces. Although regulatory steps at present may be fragmented, broken or incomplete, these laws need to be effectively implemented, while simultaneously ensuring that workplace equations between employees are not disturbed. This is a huge challenge for organizations and presents an emerging opportunity for HR managers, professionals, experts, consultants and even lawyers to establish their expertise and help businesses in compliance, training, and building systems for creation of better workplaces. 

You should consider this course if you are:

    Your organization needs expert help to stop sexual harassment, comply with legal requirements, create a diversity friendly workplace environment and you could be the expert on these matters. Why be confused about the laws, proceedings and rules when you could be confident about every decision you make, every audit you conduct and every hearing you preside over? 
  2. A COMPLIANCE PROFESSIONAL (CA, CS and other compliance consultants)

Why not add an extra skill to your list of offerings, especially since MNC clients pay very well for sexual harassment related compliances?

This course is also great for those aiming at an In House Counsel role in any big organization.
