Within Our Power
Within Our Power is a unique product. It uses stories inspired by real-life, delivered with emotional impact, to illustrate the subtleties, complexities, and varieties of workplace sexual harassment.
The course highlights what each member of a workplace community can do to achieve the common goal of preventing and addressing sexual harassment and maintaining a safe and respectful work environment for all.
Within Our Power offers insights into the four different roles employees may find themselves in when sexual harassment begins to unfold, and presents 4 proactive, powerful, and practical actions that anyone can use to prevent and/or address sexual harassment. Awarded 2020 Silver Telly in the category of Corporate Training, 1 of only 16 programs to be honored.
Mary Chlopecki designed this course based on her more than 20 years as an attorney, investigator and trainer, focusing on preventing and addressing workplace harassment. The stories shown in this program are fictional, but were inspired and informed by real cases. Mary collaborated with Joel Lesko of SunShower Learning to bring her training to life. We invite you to explore, demo and use this course to help your organization create a safer and more respectful workplace.

“The videos resonate with our real life concerns and issues. Gone are the cheesy videos that were never applicable to our IT organization, replaced by the videos included in the Within Our Power Workshop Kit that Mary created that mirror real-life issues taken from her experience as an investigator and litigator. The training is refreshing and designed for what we wanted as a management team and not a one-sized fits all program that wasn’t applicable to our company.”

“As an employment lawyer in Washington, D.C., my clients often need someone to provide training for their employees about preventing harassment and discrimination. For almost two decades now, I have referred my clients to Mary Chlopecki for such training and have gotten overwhelmingly positive feedback about her presentations. Mary’s presentations are grounded in a thorough and detailed understanding of the requirements of the law and are informed by her years of experience in conducting workplace investigations. I have personally observed Mary in a challenging training situation (with attendees from both the US and the UK) and was impressed with her engaging style and her common sense responses to questions and comments. From my perspective, Mary is the best in the field.”
