Catalysts for Change: Active Bystander Training for Students. Tues 16th Jan 3-4pm online training

Learn how to be an active bystander when you witness discrimination or harassment.

This workshop is for students studying science, engineering, mathematics, technology and the built environment subjects at Scottish universities or colleges.

This interactive workshop provides skills and strategies for participants to intervene as active bystanders in STEM fields.

Through a presentation and group activities, attendees will learn how to define unacceptable behaviours such as discrimination and microaggressions and learn about tools and strategies to shift cultural norms through active bystander intervention.

This interactive workshop will help you to:
• Define unacceptable behaviours such as discrimination, harassment and microaggressions;
• Recognise situations that warrant active bystander intervention in STEM contexts;
• Understand the stages of the intervention process and common barriers to intervening to devise strategies to overcome them;
• Demonstrate effective communication strategies for direct and indirect intervention as an active bystander.
