Ever wondered “Why didn’t I say something?” after witnessing social bias—a stereotype, a prejudice or discrimination—that happened in your everyday life? Deciding whether and how to respond to bias is complicated. Understanding what motivates us to speak up, the challenges we face when doing so, and strategies for effective responding can help bystanders to bias better evaluate their options and select effective strategies.

In this web-based workshop, attendees will first learn about bystander reactions to social biases and how these reactions can help or hinder decisions to speak up. Building on this understanding, participants will learn key strategies for speaking up that invite reflection and dialogue. Attendees will then be invited to apply these concepts to everyday incidents of bias through facilitated interaction and discussion.

This program is faciliated by The UNH PowerPlay team and Dr. Stephanie Goodwin of Incluxion Works, Inc.

PowerPlay: Bystander Intervention is part of our Cornerstones of Community programming. 

Faculty sessions will be held on Tuesday, February 23rd. Sessions for staff will be held on Tuesday, March 9th. Registration is required.
