Bystanders Awareness & Action: Supporting a Vibrant Work Environment through Studies, Stories, and Systems
When: February 11, 2020 from 11:00 - 1:00 PM
Where: CSD 1300 (NTID)
This interactive workshop focuses on bystander awareness and includes time for discussion, practice, and practical takeaways. We will share new studies that are showing the importance but also the limits of what active bystanders can do. We want to hear your stories. What are challenges for bystanders, such as how bystander moves may be insufficient, may backfire, may be unwelcome, or may create awkwardness or divisions. This workshop also adds a systems level view, looking at how broader systems and norms may contribute to ongoing challenges that bystanders struggle to address through interventions in the moment. Engaging at a systems level, we will highlight people at RIT whose offices and roles bring a systems level view of RIT and will provide advice on how to raise issues and get support, all with the goal of collectively stewarding a culture of inclusion in which all can thrive
