Discussing Sexual Harassment In The Classroom (or Online): An Interactive Exercise
This activity is suitable for undergraduate Organizational Behavior courses to discuss the topic of sexual harassment in a relatable, interactive manner, instead of just relying on legal definitions. Students are shown a short video portraying two young people interacting in a workplace situation, where the male character makes inappropriate advances towards the female character. The situation portrayed is very life-like, but not so disturbing that it could make some students feel uncomfortable. The follow-up questions and discussion allow students to hear each other’s opinions on the behaviors of the two characters.
