Training & Prevention

Dear Members of the Staff and Faculty,
In light of the current COVID-19 status we have decided to cancel all upcoming March 19 & 20 Workplace Harassment Prevention Training sessions. 
We understand how popular the live trainings are and we are working hard to reschedule them to ensure staff and faculty have the opportunity to attend a session with Dr.Jones sometime in the Fall. 
During this time of uncertainty we will do our best to keep you updated.



Dr. Jones has been heralded as a dynamic keynote speaker, transformational facilitator, phenomenal organization effectiveness consultant, and innovative executive. He is the CEO of Jones & Associates Consulting, a diversity and organizational effectiveness consulting firm based in San Diego. In 2005, Dr. Jones was acknowledged as one of "America's Top Experts on Diversity" by Diversity Inc. magazine. He holds a Bachelor's in Computer Science, an M.ED in counseling, and a Master's and Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. Dr. Jones is sought after by companies, schools, and universities seeking to make real change as they prepare to step into the 21st Century. He brings over 27 years of experience helping leaders throughout the country move beyond talk to action. Dr. Jones currently serves as the National Diversity Advisor to Honda, Sempra Energy, and Hyundai and has extensive experience working with colleges and universities across the country. He is the author of Journey to Excellence, a book that is empowering readers to achieve their goals, both personally and professionally. He is also in the process of completing his second book entitled Culturally Competency: Leading through New Lenses in the 21st Century.


Please contact Lucy Amirkhanian, Equal Opportunity and Title IX Administrative Assistant at to register for the online training option. 

The online training is provided to assist supervisors to identify and eliminate workplace harassment and discrimination based on "protected characteristics" by helping them understand the law and respond to misconduct appropriately.

The course also helps supervisors address inappropriate behavior before it creates a "hostile work environment" by giving supervisors the skills necessary to recognize and address abusive behavior and other misconduct, including microaggressions and unconscious bias, that may lead to workplace bullying or hostility, reducing productivity and creativity.

The training also invites supervisors to consider the nature of harassment and discrimination, and provides practical tips on creating a safe, inclusive environment for work including safe and positive options for bystander intervention. Filled with engaging interactive exercises, it covers all aspects of a supervisor's role in promoting a harassment and discrimination free workplace.

Important tips:

  • The complete course takes approximately 2 hours to complete. 
  • Once started you are able to save the training and re-visit the training at any time to complete it.
  • Please ensure you are taking the course on a computer, as opposed to a smart phone or a tablet. It will run on an iPad, although it is not yet fully optimized. 
  • The browser suggestions for the best experience are: 
    • Mac OS X: Safari 7 & 8, Chrome and Firefox
    • Windows: Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer 9, 10 or 11
