Bystander Intervention: What to Do When You May Not Know What to Do
Monday, November 8, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST
This workshop will give a basic introduction to Bystander Intervention. In this workshop, participants will learn about what causes hesitancy when thinking about intervening, types of harm that people may encounter, and strategies to safely intervene. Participants will also explore identity and how the identities we hold affect our understanding of the world around us.
- Gain an understanding of what it means to be a bystander and factors that influence intervention
- Gain multiple strategies to intervene and disrupt harm, such as microaggressions, bias incidents, stereotyping, sexual harassment, etc.
- Act as an ally and educator, especially when you hold privilege and power and witness harm to those who do not hold privilege
