Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

For the first time in history in Saudi Arabia, Jane Kim presented training on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace. The training coincided with the passing of the first ever Saudi law on sexual harassment on 8 June 2018. The law keeps within the Islamic Sharia rules and addresses modern issues of sexual harassment, such as the use of "modern technology.” It is also gender neutral. The challenge in presenting on this topic to a predominantly Saudi audience but to a corporation with employees from 98 different countries, is that the question of- what is sexual harassment, is different in different cultures. For instance, while sexual harassment in the West must be severe or persistent, Saudi cultural norms dictate that sexual harassment may be very mild and a single incident. Or, what might be viewed as mild to a western person is severe in Saudi Arabia. In other words, Sexual harassment rules are a reflection of cultural norms at any given time. As western companies are moving toward zero tolerance rules, they are moving closer to the Saudi cultural norms.

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
policies and training 

Sexual Harassment is distinct from etiquette classes or equal treatment of women in the workplace concepts. What  constitutes Sexual Harassment in the Workplace is based on  each corporation's culture. It becomes more complex for multicultural corporations, in that what Sexual Harassment may mean to me may be wildly different from what it may mean to someone from another culture.

FCPA

Globalization has a huge impact on corporate compliance. As corporations do business within differing cultural norms while adhering to the laws of their home-country, their compliance programs become more complex. Jane Kim has considerable experience in designing training that communicates to her audience, whether these employees are located in Russia, the Middle East or the U.S.. Yet, her training does not lose track of the laws regulating corporations. Jane Kim drafts agreements and policies and advises clients on the impact of the FCPA on their practices.

Jane Kim covers a broad range of topics encompassing patients' rights and informed consent, starting with their history, how did it come about, who contributed to the development of these principles? Then proceeding to juxtapose western norms and islamic principles,

Consent
Patients' Rights and Informed Consent
policies and training
Jane Kim covers a broad range of topics encompassing Patients' Rights and Informed Consent. Training can be geared toward a sophisticated audience, such as physicians or simplified for incoming nurses. The topic starts with the history of the Patient's Rights and  who contributed to the development of Informed Consent. As we know, Informed Consent was developed in the West. However, if an organization is located somewhere else in the world, it becomes important  to juxtapose western norms and that culture's principles. The training further describes the importance of  each element of Informed Consent. Informed Consent is not effective if it is not understood by the patient, hence Jane Kim covers the  “S-P-I-K-E-S” 6-step protocol on how to break bad news. In Islamic cultures, for instance, she covers who is a Guardian and when a Guardian's consent is triggered. 

Jane Kim designed training programs for incoming nurses following JCI protocols. Some of the topics are ethics in the nursing profession, recognizing duties that nurses have to patients and their families, learning what "negligence" means in a context of nursing tasks; learning to properly document events, learning to overcome and properly perform discharges against medical advice, etc.
