Tahoe chamber to host anti-sexual harassment workshop

Tahoe Chamber will host its next "Level UP" workshop on topics that have been at the forefront of the national discourse for the past five months: sexual harassment, gender discrimination and bullying in the workplace.

Tahoe Chamber invites HR leaders, business owners and managers to attend the workshop on Wednesday, Feb. 21, inside the Tahoe Chamber conference room from noon to 1:30 p.m.

The cost is $10 for Tahoe Chamber members and $20 for aspiring members. Tickets can be purchased online at TahoeChamber.org and will be available at the door the day of the workshop.

"Many of us spend most of our waking hours at work, particularly in a town driven by tourism. Gender dynamics in the workplace is a complex topic and it is critical to identify those dynamics in order to ensure a healthy work environment," Laura Moriarty, workshop facilitator, said in a press release. "The MeToo movement has highlighted the need for everyone to understand when innocent conduct crosses the line and becomes a pattern of unwanted behavior, and what to do if that happens."

According to Tahoe Chamber, Moriarty is a seasoned HR executive, nationally known corporate trainer, and frequent presenter of Sierra Human Resources Association workshops. Her organization, Tahoe Training Partners, has provided quality training, executive coaching, 360-feedback, compensation and strategic planning, meeting facilitation, and customized organizational retreats since 2007.

Organizations and individuals who sign-up for all five Level UP workshops on or before Feb. 21 will receive one workshop for free. Visit TahoeChamber.org for more details and to register.
