Removing Barriers to Action: Bystander Intervention
Presenting Partner: NovakTalks
Program Description: It is not enough to tell individuals to not be bystanders. We must create environments that empower individuals to act. This interactive workshop engages participants in an evidenced-based discussion about creating environments in their chapters or community that compels action while providing realistic strategies for empowering all members of the chapter or community to use their voice when peer behaviors are not aligned with acceptable standards of behavior.
Goals: This dynamic program will empower participants to:
- Utilize the identified barriers to action to evaluate organization environment in order to identify where barriers can be reduced and people can be empowered to ACT.
- Design organization operations/systems as well as basic informational programs in such a way as to remove barriers to action.
- Create initiatives to communicate what behaviors your organization/ community sees as a problem and wants individuals to take action against.
- Design strategically developed training within their community or chapter to create an environment that empowers individuals to act.
Time: 2 hours
Intended Audience: Chapter leaders, members, new members. Faculty, staff and volunteers that work with organizations are welcome to join.
