Part 5: Bystander Intervention and Allyship


Register at

This online workshop explores what do we do when we are a bystander to bullying, harassment, and/or violence? We will cover 5-steps of bystander intervention, including when and how to recognize a problem, how to overcome our reluctance to step-in and be a part of the solution by learning to intervene safely. Then we will discuss moving from a bystander to becoming an ally, a proactive bystander. All of us can be a part of the solution and step in to become active bystanders when we witness bullying, harassment, and/or violence. Participants will be able to participate in a small group discussion during the workshop.
