Why Bystander Training


Across the country, we are seeing an escalation in reports of bias, discrimination, harassment and assault — in the workplace, on campus, and in virtually every arena of public life. Each incident takes a heavy toll on the mental and physical well-being of the victims, and can have long-term consequences for the organizations involved. We can and must do better. It starts with training that ensures that members of your community know how to respectfully, peacefully and effectively intervene.
