Stand Up, Speak Out! How to Interrupt Bias by Being an Active Bystander Webinar
All too often we witness subtle comments or behaviors rooted in bias that intentionally or unintentionally cause harm to others, especially those directed toward people in vulnerable populations. Have you ever been in a situation like that and wanted to say or do something, but didn't know what to do? Anyone can become an active bystander and learn to address explicit and implicit bias. In this 90-minute introductory webinar, we will explore some of the most common forms of bias and identify tools you can use as an active bystander to interrupt bias in daily life. We will discuss strategies you can deploy to stop the harm and provide educational moments for those enacting implicit bias. These tools will enable you to create more welcoming, inclusive, and equitable environments and contribute to the transformation of oppressive social systems.
