Online Bystander Intervention: Stepping In with Care and Confidence  (back)
Have you ever witnessed something that left you uneasy or concerned for another person at work, but you didn’t know how to step in and improve the situation --- so you did nothing? You are not alone. It is common to feel unsure of what to do when we witness behavior that concerns us.

This interactive workshop will introduce you to important intervention skills for building healthy, inclusive and engaging workplaces. You will have the opportunity to practice multiple intervention options in real-life scenarios, and will leave equipped with options to interrupt and improve concerning workplace situations when they arise.

Why Should You Attend?

  • Learn skills that build your confidence and increase motivation to identify, intervene and interrupt behaviors that negatively impact the workplace.

  • Examine various options for effectively intervening and improving negative situations through the 4D’s of Stepping In framework.

  • Develop your ability to assess a situation and confidently select an effective intervention option for the situation.

  • Practice bystander interventions and skills to use in your workplace, including what to say.
