Tackling Hate Crime Course

Hate’s never good. And if it’s about something discriminatory, it’s even worse. And if it’s then acted upon…Well, that’s why we’re here. We can’t have hate crimes. We need to tackle them. Because hate can’t be tolerated. Neither can crimes. That’s why they’re crimes. So hate crimes are bad twice. They’re double bad.

To keep them out of where you work, you need to know about them. What they are, how to spot them and what to do if you do. That’s what this course is for.

As part of our Policy and Compliance collection, this course shows your employees what hate crimes are, and what constitutes them, the difference between hate crimes and hate incidents, as well as the five key discrimination characteristics and what to do in the event of an incident.

This course is for employers interested in creating and maintaining a harmonious work environment and employees wanting to work in a hate-free atmosphere. It contains one elearning module (available in SCORM 1.2, 2004 and Tin Can xAPI), 7 animated explainer videos, 1 course description, 1 workbook, 1 transcript, as well as a course thumbnail and LMS badge.

New courses are added to our library free of charge every single week to subscribers. Find out more about how we’re saving the world from boring learning by getting a free trial.


VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Do you hate crime? What a stupid question – of course you do. Everyone does.

Even Don Corleone was sick of it by the end.

But there’s hating crime, and there’s hate crimes. Not that you shouldn’t hate hate crimes, but still. The difference between hate crimes and regular crimes is the motivation behind them. A lot of crimes are motivated by hate – assault, slashing someone’s tyres, putting dog-doo through their letterbox…But hate crimes are motivated by racial, sexual, or other prejudicial hate. Things people don’t choose. That’s what makes them particularly nasty. And why they can’t be tolerated.

Doesn’t matter whether it’s in work or in everyday life. And yet, according to FBI statistics, in one year in the US, there are, on average, over 7,000 incidents of hate crime. Almost 60% are due to racial bias, 20% religious and more than 15% homophobic. That’s not good enough. And if it’s happening in society, it can happen in the workplace. Luckily, there are steps you can take to combat this. This course is gonna help you to:

  • Understand what constitutes a hate crime
  • Identify hate crimes when you encounter them
  • Understand what to do in the event of a hate crime
  • Create a more inclusive environment
  • Put controls in place to minimise hate crime incidents

So, wherever you work, whatever industry, whatever size company – if you work with others, check this course out.
