[Rackham] Bystander Intervention: What to Do When You May Not Know What to Do

Session Is Over
Livestream Available (Visible After Registration)

This workshop will give a basic introduction to Bystander Intervention. In this workshop, participants will learn about what causes hesitancy when thinking about intervening, types of harm that people may encounter, and strategies to safely intervene. Participants will also explore identity and how the identities we hold affect our understanding of the world around us. 

Learning objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of what it means to be a bystander and factors that influence intervention 
  • Gain multiple strategies to intervene and disrupt harm, such as microaggressions, bias incidents, stereotyping, sexual harassment, etc. 
  • Act as an ally and educator, especially when you hold privilege and power and witness harm to those who do not hold privilege

This workshop is designed for master's students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.

This workshop is part of the Rackham North Workshop Series although graduate students from all campuses are welcome to attend.
