Meeting in a Box

Facilitating the Conversation About Respectful Workplaces

The BC Public Service is committed to promoting a work environment that is free from discrimination and harassment and where all employees are treated with respect and dignity.

Everyone in the BC Public Service is responsible for promoting a respectful workplace. Supervisors and members of the Employee Advisory Council have a particular role.

Meeting in a Box helps supervisors and Employee Advisory Council members teach employees about respectful workplaces. It offers tips as well as an adaptable meeting framework to meet each team's needs. The meeting format could also address specific elements of respectful workplaces such as inclusive language.
