6-07-23 Be an Upstander, Not a Bystander
Recorded On: 06/07/2023
By definition, an upstander is someone who chooses to take positive action to address inequities and other forms of mistreatment directed at marginalized individuals and/or groups.
Moving from being a bystander to an upstander can be challenging. Sometimes we feel compelled to take action but freeze up when we sense real or perceived danger. How do you know when to act? What are the different ways to respond? This session will explore bystander and upstander behaviors and help leaders identify strategies to reduce harmful behaviors when they occur.
