On behalf of the DLF Equity & Inclusion Committee:

Please join us for a live Active Bystander Orientation session on Thursday, October 3 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific time. Connect via Zoom: https://clirdlf.zoom.us/j/940044221 (more connection info below).

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? After an introduction to bystander intervention and an overview of strategies, we will think together about how to apply active bystander approaches to situations that might happen in professional or social contexts. 

To prepare for the orientation session, you can read the Code of Conduct, watch this brief video, read one or more of the three short articles about bystander intervention linked below, and reflect on the following scenarios:
