As regards issues of sexual harassment, the American legal and cultural environment is quite different from that of Japan. It’s important that Japanese expatriates working in the U.S. fully understand American laws and customs so that they can avoid misunderstandings and have smooth working relationships.
Since our firm’s founding in 1994, sexual harassment prevention seminars for Japanese have been one of our key offerings. We have a specially designed set of bilingual materials that help put American views on sexual harassment into a cultural context, and that address typical concerns and questions of Japanese about how to ensure that they are behaving appropriately in the U.S. Conducted in Japanese, these sessions ensure full comprehension, and an emphasis on case studies makes them practical and interactive. Our sessions are also compliant with State of California requirements.
Our sexual harassment prevention courses can be delivered at your site in either a half-day or full-day format, and can also be combined with our general session on Working Effectively with Americans to make a powerful combination. Courses can also be customized to meet your specific needs.
For more information on scheduling a seminar at your location, please contact our Seminar Coordinator Ryan Pfeiffer.
For your reference, we have prepared a helpful article in both English and Japanese entitled “Checklist for Planning Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Programs for Japanese Participants.” Based on our years of experience in this field, this article provides crucial information for anyone planning a training program for Japanese participants.
