Join RWN for Boys in the Breakroom

Monday, April 30, 2018

Join us for ”Boys in the Breakroom”, a two hour theatre-based workshop on sexual harassment in the workplace, presented by Impact Interactive, LLC. Impact Interactive is a unique theatre-based training company. They use interactive theatre techniques, and trained performance educators to stimulate dialogue, challenge assumptions, engage groups in collaborative problem solving, and explore practical strategies for change.

Through activities and discussion, this interactive workshop explores sexual harassment in the workplace. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in theatre-based activities, as well as watch a short scripted scene where a young woman struggles with choices around how to handle her increasingly hostile work environment. When the tensions heighten, the scene freezes and participants are invited to interact with the characters, to learn more about their thoughts, feelings and motivations. Together the group will discuss and identify strategies for creating a workplace environment where everyone feels safe, respected and can do their best work.

Primary questions addressed through this workshop include but are:

  • What is sexual harassment?
  • What is hostile work environment and how is it different from Quid Pro Quo?
  • What kinds of behaviors are considered unlawful?
  • How do these behaviors affect people in the workplace?
  • How do these behaviors impact an organization?
  • What kind of attitudes and values contribute to a work environment where these behaviors are acceptable?
  • Why are victims afraid to speak up?
  • What are your organization's policies around sexual harassment and where can you go for more information?
  • Who can you talk to if you are feeling harassed? 

A special thank you to Impact Interactive for putting this program on for RWN!

Space is limited to 30 participants.
