For Businesses

The EEOC reported last year that much of the training conducted in businesses over the last thirty years, much of which has focused on legal compliance, has been ineffective in changing behavior. Their research found that bystander training and civility training are most effective for preventing and responding to harassment in the workplace.

For Schools

Racial and sexual discrimination, harassment and violence in schools and college campuses have reached crisis levels, harming students and institutions across the country. We need to respond more effectively than we have in the past. Bystander training creates allies and can change the culture on campus to one of respect.
