Handling Third Party Sexual Harassment in Libraries
2019-08-27

The #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have recently brought to popular consciousness the pervasiveness of sexual harassment in the workplace. In public libraries, frontline workers are often victims of harassment by the very people they endeavour to support--library patrons. In this session we will explore the problem of third party harassment for library workers by examining the multiple facets of the problem, discussing the issue via a series of scenarios, and providing a set of "best practices" derived from professional and academic literature that can assist individuals and organizations dealing with this issue.

Participants will:
- Gain an understanding of the multi-faceted problem of harassment.
- Learn practical, evidence-based "best practices" for supporting colleagues and dealing with harassment.
