Prevent Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
A CALL TO MEN recognizes that sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination based on sex, a manifestation of unequal power relations between men and women. Although the U.S. Constitution guarantees equality before the law, it does not specifically mention sex discrimination.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 specifically prohibits sex discrimination in the workplace. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, three in 10 cases before the EEOC are sex discrimination cases, with more than 26,000 reported to the EEOC in 2014.
A CALL TO MEN works with corporations, organizations and government entities to provide education and training to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. Training ensures compliance with Title VII, state civil rights and fair employment laws. Attendees learn what sexual harassment is, why it is important to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace, and how to recognize and react to discriminatory behavior or policies.
At the core of all of A CALL TO MEN’s work is educating men on healthy, respectful manhood. Embracing and promoting a healthy, respectful manhood prevents violence against women, sexual assault and harassment, bullying and many other social ills.
