Building Respect and Civility in the Workplace

RIT is committed to building an environment in which all people are treated with respect and dignity at all times. How each one of us interacts with our co-workers every day establishes the collective experiences through which our commitment to respect and dignity becomes real.  Through reflection, conversation, scenario debriefs and group interaction, we will explore together.

  • Our own experiences of respect and disrespect and their impact on our morale, productivity, and willingness to take risks.
  • The importance of civility and demonstrating basic courtesies such as "please" and "thank you."
  • Communication skills and behaviors that build work relationships of respect and dignity.
  • Using experiences of incivility and disrespect as learning opportunities that create mutual understanding and reconciliation.
