Due to changes in University policy, employees are now required to continually complete the Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct training administered by the Office of Equity (OE). Please review the information below to ensure that you are in compliance with this mandated requirement.
Provost Nairn sent out system-wide communication regarding revisions made to the Sexual Misconduct Policy that went into effect on October 1, 2018. The policy revisions included a new requirement for all employees; to continually complete training on all OE-related policies. The training referenced in the policy administered by the OE, is titled, Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct.
To simplify tracking employee training completion, as of January 1, 2019, all employees status related to training completion were reset to “out of compliance."
There are three ways to complete the required training:
1. You can attend a 2 hour, in-person training hosted by Human Resources and the Office of Equity.
2. You can complete the online Skillsoft training on your UCDAccess Portal titled CU: Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct.
3. You can request an in-person training that is specific to your department.
You are able to track your training completion status and/or the training completion status of your department staff (if you are a supervisor), via a training summary.
A training summary is a record of all trainings you have completed thus far, via Skillsoft. Training listed in an employee’s training summary is what the OE will reference to ensure all employees are complying with the new training requirement.

We would love the opportunity to work with you and discover how we can be involved in your department's education in an effort to promote a safer and more inclusive campus environment. Please review the trainings we are able to offer and/or learn how we can customize a training for you.
Equity 101: What We Do: We cover our offices work and why it is important. If time allows, we include videos, case studies, and other interactive activities and discussion. This training can range from 15 minutes to an hour.
Equity 201: Supporting Survivors: If you are in a role on campus where someone might disclose to you that something has happened to them, this training is for you. We discuss tips on what to say and not say, deconstruct what it means to be a “responsible employee,” and practice how to respond to a survivor. This training takes one hour and is great for groups of co-workers.
Equity 301: Ally Training: The ultimate Office of Equity training! In this training we cover everything listed above as well as a more in-depth exploration of why discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct exists in our society and how we can work together to end it.
We would love the opportunity to design a training specific for you and your group based on the type of work you do, your curriculum, and/or issues affecting your department.
