Join us for a compassionate, experiential training to increase awareness, intervention and prevention of bias, microaggressions, discrimination and harassment. While the focus of this workshop will be health equity, participants will learn skills to become an active bystander in any situation. This workshop includes short videos, demonstrations, partner and small group activities as well as scenarios with opportunities to practice. If you have ever been in a situation where you witnessed someone being harmed and you didn't know what to say or do, this is the training for you. Gain the skills and confidence to be an Ethical Upstander! This workshop is designed to teach participants to:

  • Recognize biased or potentially harmful behavior

  • Identify commonly targeted social identity groups

  • Understand and counter the “bystander effect” psychology at the root of inaction

  • Use a variety of strategies to effectively interrupt potentially harmful situations

  • Be an ally to those who have been targeted

  • Respectfully “call in” those in our community who are doing the harm  

*This workshop is free to DPH employees; but due
to a registration cap, pre-registration is required.
