Course Number
WI400
Promotora Protesting with her hands clasped in front of her mouth.

"Sweeping Change” is a new report that documents the prevalence and experiences of workplace sexual harassment in the California janitorial industry, as well as the conditions that hinder reporting and impose silence. Yet, out of this challenging context, an innovative response has emerged—this report examines a model for confronting workplace sexual harassment that was developed by workers in the California janitorial industry which may hold important lessons for addressing the problem in other low-wage industries.

Effective March 16, 2020, the educational programs scheduled to be delivered at our New York City facility will be moved to virtual delivery, where possible, or rescheduled. For those programs that do not lend themselves to a distance-education format, we will postpone them until we receive guidance from the University and public health officials that it is safe to hold those programs in-person. Please contact ilrcustomerservice@cornell.edu with any questions. We will provide updates as they become available from the University.
