Training Video on Workplace Harassment in the Arts for Employers

Under the Respectful Workplaces in the Arts banner (, the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) is pleased to release a training video on workplace harassment in the arts for employers – including Boards of Directors of not-for-profit organizations. A similar training video for cultural workers (including self-employed artists, contractors and employees) will follow soon.

This animated video on ‘responding to allegations of harassment’ has been produced to explain the rights and responsibilities of employers with respect to workplace harassment. It comes with practical takeaways and best practices to recognize and navigate incidents of harassment, and includes a questionnaire to test the learner’s recall of the video content.

This and several other resources on the website, will be immensely helpful to employers who are committed to eliminating harassment and ensuring respectful and safe workplaces in the arts.

CHRC acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
