Stand Up, Speak Out! Interrupting Bias by Being an Active Bystander

All too often we witness subtle comments or behaviors rooted in bias that cause harm to others, many times 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 2-hour interactive webinar, we will explore some of the most common expressions of bias and identify tools participants can use as an active bystander to interrupt bias in daily life. Participants will have an opportunity to apply what they have learned using real life examples.
