A bystander is someone who witnesses something wrong happening to an individual or group and doesn’t do anything about it. An upstander intervenes when an individual or group is verbally or physically attacked or bullied by others and takes action. Being an upstander in the workplace creates belonging and allyship and improves relationships.
Effective July 1st, 2022, Chicago requires managers and employees alike to take one hour of bystander intervention training per year. Emtrain's Bystander Training meets Chicago's one-hour bystander intervention training requirements. For more information on this new requirement, click here
