There has been an increasing spotlight on creating a safe, equitable, and respectful workplace culture. The law mandates training on identifying and reporting sexual harassment, but often the role and responsibility of the bystander isn’t addressed. In this workshop participants will:
Define “diffusion of responsibility” and why it’s important to stand up for fellow colleagues.
Identify potentially harmful interactions along a continuum of behaviors.
Define the “Direct, Distract, Delay, Delegate” model for choosing how to intervene when intervention is necessary.
Understand barriers to using bystander intervention and develop solutions to overcome them.
Practice applying bystander intervention tools in a variety of different scenarios.
