The programs, Sexual Harassment Prevention in the Restaurant Industry and Sexual Harassment Prevention in the Hospitality Industry, are interactive, digital, training programs that address sexual harassment and the harmful impact it has on individuals and businesses. Each program features employee and manager versions.
Developed specifically for the foodservice and hospitality industries, this courses offer scenario-based learning and emphasize the impact to individuals and the responsibility each employee has for maintaining a respectful, inclusive workplace.

Brown, the Association’s executive vice president of training and certification. “The strong response to the complimentary Sexual Harassment Prevention webinars we presented this summer shows that people in both foodservice and hospitality are eager to learn how to address this issue and change the culture. We are proud to provide them with the tools to make that happen.”
