Have you ever witnessed bullying, harassment, or an uncomfortable encounter in a professional context and wished you knew how to intervene? It can be challenging to know what to say or do on the spot. The DLF Code of Conduct invites participants to be Active Bystanders, but what does that really mean?Please join the DLF Committee for Equity and Inclusion for an Active Bystander Orientation on Tuesday, October 24 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific, ahead of this year’s DLF Forum and affiliated events. After an introduction to bystander intervention and an overview of strategies, we will open up discussion to explore how to apply active bystander strategies to situations that might happen in professional or social contexts. The presentation (but not discussion) will be recorded. Learn more about the event, including suggested readings, on the DLF Forum website.
