Active Bystanders – Wednesday 24 March 11:30 – 13:00

The psychology of the ‘bystander effect’ has long been explored and discussed. But what does it actually mean and how can this impact the progress of creating and maintaining inclusive cultures in our workplaces? If we see or hear moments of exclusion or indeed discrimination if we standby and don’t step in, are we complicit to the actions, language and behaviours of others? In this 90-minute webinar, we’ll explore the idea of ‘active bystanding’ and what we can do to step in, every time.
What delegates will learn:

Understanding the impact of workplace banter and what the law has to say about it
What is the ‘bystander effect’ – exploring the psychology
The impact on inclusive workplace culture
How we can ‘step in’ and have courageous conversations to make a positive impact
