The more of us who know how to effectively and safely intervene when we witness situations of bullying and harassment, the better. Join us at YWCA Banff on May 22nd, 2018 for a free workshop – “Becoming An Ally: Being an Active Bystander”. Two sessions are being offered on the day, one in the morning and one in the evening.
This workshop provides participants with a deeper understanding of the roots of homophobic and sexual bullying and harassment. We explore strategies to address bullying, prevent harassment, and highlight the roles of bystanders. Participants leave prepared and confident to address this issue in a way that empowers the person experiencing harassment, while providing teachable moments to those engaging in it.
This workshop is appropriate for anyone looking for tools to intervene safely when they witness inappropriate behavior.
