How to be an Active Bystander

Workshop: Becoming an Active Bystander

Have you ever encountered a situation where you worried someone might get harmed but you weren’t sure how to help or if it was your place? An Active Bystander is someone who recognizes potentially harmful or unacceptable behavior and takes steps to make a difference or intervene in a way that is safe for them. 

 This workshop focuses on unacceptable behavior that may lead to or promote sexual violence.

Objectives:

  • Define sexual violence, sexual assault, and consent
  • Understand what an Active Bystander is
  • How to identify potentially harmful situations
  • Learn the different ways you can be an Active Bystander
  • Get information about support services and where to go for advice

Workshops are tailored for specific audiences, for example, staff/ faculty, student groups, classroom presentations. Minimum time required is 1 hour (exceptions are possible).
