We’ve spent a lot of ink (digits? Pixels?) in the Daily Dawg lately on Title IX. Today a short reminder. What are the first two words you should say when someone comes into your office and says “I want to make a report of sexual harassment”? No….not the first two words you are thinking. Try these two instead:
You should start by saying THANK YOU. That’s a good start toward showing that the district disapproves of sexual harassment and seeks to eliminate it. It indicates that you understand that sexual harassment is a cancer that feeds on silence. So when someone speaks up about it, they are doing the district a service. So say THANK YOU.
DAWG BONE: YOUR FIRST TWO WORDS: THANK YOU!!
