Bystander Intervention to Stop LGBTQIA+ Harassment

Thursday November 10, 2022


Register on Zoom HERE

Diversity & Inclusion presents Right to Be

This interactive training will teach you Right To Be’s 5Ds of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that LGBTQIA+ folks are facing right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool we call the “spectrum of disrespect.” You’ll learn what to look for and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities. We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see anti-LGBTQIA+ harassment. All are welcome. Contact Director of Diversity & Inclusion, Angela Kariotis, for further collaborations.
