NYS Mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention and Response Training

LEARN at The Innovation Center, 640 Ellicott St, Buffalo, NY 14203, USA
3:30PM - 5:00PM

Small business owners: did you know that all companies in NY with a least one employee must have a sexual harassment policy? And that all employees must attend an interactive training on that policy by October 9, 2019?  

Did we give you a panic attack? If your business need a policy, the State of New York has compiled helpful material, including a model policy, here: https://www.ny.gov/combating-sexual-harassment-workplace/employers.

But what about the "interactive" training? This important but unfunded mandate has hit a lot of small companies (those with under 15 employees) hard. So Ignite Buffalo is setting up free trainings to help small businesses meet the requirements!

Only one session is required, but all employees must attend. These sessions are limited to businesses with teams of 15 or less. To ensure sessions are interactive, we're limiting attendance to 30 and leaders should should send your company's sexual harassment policy to sara@losapllc.com in advance.

Journaling is NOT for Wimps

LEARN at The Innovation Center, 640 Ellicott St, Buffalo, NY 14203, USA
8:30AM - 10:30AM

Some of our greatest leaders kept journals - for their ideas, reflections and for posterity. Everyday folks like us may think we aren't doing stuff worthy of recording. Well, the greats weren't always great! Journaling a little bit each day is a way to sort out our rush of tasks, challenges, wins, and losses. Once the habit of journaling is in place, one finds they are able to lower stress by listing and problem-solving tasks away from the immediate. By reflecting on a less-than-anticipated outcome one may tease apart behaviors and habits to refine or avoid. Regularly including notes of gratitude and celebration leads one to be more fully engaged in the present - and more comfortable building a hoped-for future. All these outcomes are realized thru a journaling habit. This session will offer several points for participants to actually journal on particular themes with time to reflect and debrief. Journaling methods and techniques will be shared.
