Come along to this short session to find out why this happens and what it means to be an active bystander

  • Have you ever been concerned about a situation and wanted to help, but didn't?
  • Heard a racist/sexist/homophobic joke in the tea room?
  • Seen an inappropriate touch of a friend?
  • Watched a colleague wince at being belittled or interrupted in a team meeting?

You're not alone, this is more common for many of us than you might think!



This session also includes simple changes and actions you can take to support others around you without confrontation and, over time, support a more inclusive environment for all of us to live and work in.
