Respect Training

In 45 minutes, the “You’re not alone. Promoting respect” e-learning module teaches you how to identify inappropriate behaviors and react to situations that cannot be tolerated. It is part of the “EPFL Essentials“, which all community members should follow. A specific track is available for team leaders and faculty members, due to their legal responsibility to intervene in case of harassment, discrimination or violence.
