At some time or another, we have all been a third-party witness to problematic behavior or harassment. What is the role of the bystander? And how do you go from being a passive bystander to someone who takes action?
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.
Bystander Training consists of a series of ready-made lessons Emtrain has previously authored on upstander intervention and allyship.
The course is designed to meet Chicago's one-hour bystander intervention training requirements.
