Core values are the heartbeat of your organization. You likely have values that address topics such as respect for all people, individual dignity, and trust among team members. But every day your organization can face threats to your values. These threats can come in the form of harassment, discrimination, retaliation, favoritism, and gossip.
Addressing these threats, especially workplace harassment & discrimination, can be difficult. Not only are they complicated topics, but there is legal activity impacting these matters as we speak.
