Are You the Harasser?

By August 28, 2013

Review your attitudes and actions toward others. Do you base your behavior on stereotypes of others? Is your behavior sex neutral and bias free?

Consider the impact you have on others’ attitudes toward their work, education, and self-esteem.

Examine how others respond to what you say and do.

Do not assume that colleagues, peers, employees, or students enjoy sexually oriented comments, remarks about their appearance, being touched, or being stared at.

Do not assume that others will tell you they are offended – or harassed – by what you say and do.

Be aware that unwelcome sexual humor and innuendoes may violate the University’s sexual harassment policy.
