About the Expert

Shannon Rawski
Dr. Shannon L. Rawski is an assistant professor of Human Resource Management at University of Wisconsin — Oshkosh and a consultant at Thrive Mind Consulting, LLC, specializing in assessing and improving sexual harassment training effectiveness. Her research was featured at TEDxOshkosh and has been cited by popular media such as the The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine and more.

Sexual harassment training is vital to administer in organizations. However, many employees dislike this type of training – often because they feel unfairly accused of being a harasser or a victim of sexual harassment.

J. J. Keller's new sexual harassment training program offers the information of a standard legally compliant training program, but frames this information from a bystander's perspective. This technique is based on my own research on employee reactions to sexual harassment training and is designed to reduce backlash reactions to training. The bystander perspective helps employees identify with a positive role – the active bystander role – that can help prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.

This training doesn't stop at presenting the legal definitions; it helps employees understand the social complexity of sexual harassment. The training makes it clear that small disrespectful behaviors can add up to a toxic culture over time, and it encourages employees to maintain a respectful workplace culture by using the IDEA model of bystander intervention.

The IDEA model offers potential bystanders multiple options to intervene in a sexual harassment situation so that they can choose the option they are most comfortable and confident executing. These options direct employees to be an active bystander by deescalating the conflict, protecting the target of the harassment from harm, and notifying the appropriate organizational leaders of the problematic situation before it becomes another #MeToo scandal.
