Ms Roberts Beauty Academy believes the best method to address the above offenses is to prevent them from happening in the first place. Prevention requires all individuals to be educated, aware and diligent. To assist in this prevention effort, Ms Roberts Beauty Academy does the following:

  • Educate new students (during new student orientation) and associates (during new associate orientation) about these offenses, including what they are and what to do if they have been victimized or have seen or heard about someone else being victimized.
  • Provide ongoing awareness of these offenses to existing students and associates via an annual distribution of the Annual Security Report, with an emphasis on the topic of the offenses and related programs outlined herein.

As with other forms of harassment, individuals who believe they are victims of sexual harassment should make it clear to the source(s) of the harassment that such behavior is offensive to them. If the behavior continues, document the matter and refer it to a responsible associate.
