Required employee training

All UW employees — except for UW Medicine employees — are required to attend these training sessions. UW Medicine employees receive all required trainings elsewhere and are not required to complete the trainings below.

Addressing Discrimination & Harassment (ADH)

All newly hired employees are required to attend a session on addressing discrimination and harassment. This session helps employees identify situations of perceived discrimination and sexual harassment, resolve the situation, and understand applicable law.

Most newly hired benefits-eligible employees at the Seattle campus (excepting medical centers) are required to attend Welcome Day, which includes a session on Addressing Discrimination & Harassment (formerly Prevention of Sexual Harassment).

Current non-new employees and new employees who are not otherwise required to attend Welcome Day may register for just the ADH portion of Welcome Day in order to meet the requirement.

Important notice regarding the Addressing Discrimination and Harassment course: This course is temporarily unavailable while content is updated to comply with the 2020 Title IX regulations, which took effect on August 14th. We anticipate that the updated course materials will be available in early October 2020. If you have already registered for the course, you will receive an email notification when it is available for viewing. While the course is unavailable, you may review the University’s policies prohibiting sexual harassment, sexual assault and other forms of sexual misconduct by visiting the University’s Title IX website at The site contains a number of useful resources, including:

  • The Know Your Rights & Resources guide
  • Information on how to file a formal complaint with the University
  • Title IX FAQs

We also recommend that you review the University’s Nondiscrimination and Affirmative Action policy, Executive Order No. 31. Please note that reviewing these resources is not a substitute for completing the Addressing Discrimination and Harassment course; you must complete that course when it is available, in compliance with the University’s onboarding requirements.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please direct any questions to the Office of the Title IX Coordinator at
