Exploring Identities and Bystander Responses to Create Inclusive Workplaces Cohort  (back)
Note: This is a three-part learning community that combines two courses: Understanding Your Experiences and Identities and Bystander Intervention: Stepping in with Care and Confidence.

In this three-part learning experience, you are invited to gather with a cohort to expand your self-awareness, socialization, and your shared responsibility in cultivating a climate of inclusion in the workplace where everyone feels a sense of belonging, value, and representation.

In part one (4 hours) you will explore your identity and lived experience. You will learn about the cycle of socialization to understand how your identity affects your worldview. Participants will develop skills to notice when you start to make assumptions about your observations in service to creating an inclusive work environment.

In part two (4 hours) you will engage in discussion around what factors make up an inclusive environment and develop skills to notice, name, and interrupt behaviors and actions that are barriers to creating the work environment and relationships we want for everyone at UW-Madison. You will learn a specific bystander intervention framework that will give you options to respond to and/or interrupt concerning behaviors in the workplace.

Finally, in part three (2 hours) you will gather with your cohort colleagues to further practice and discuss bystander intervention responses using relevant cases studies.
