Bystander Intervention

Something offensive has just been done or said. Who should address it? How?

Victims aren’t always empowered to speak up. Addressing microaggressions or offensive behavior is important to ensuring your coworkers feel supported and safe at work and to uphold the dignity of your workplace. Bystander training provides employees with the tools they need to stand up against offensive behavior.

The award-winning A Brighter Tomorrow training series proves that high-impact training can be as entertaining as it is effective. Using WILL’s Choose Your Own Journey® methodology and streaming-quality scenarios, the Brighter Tomorrow series is the simply the best training available to improve workplace culture.

Episode Summary

A client makes an offensive remark to project manager Makai. Charlie recognizes this remark as a microaggression and the effect was hurtful and insulting. Charlie can choose appropriate ways to be an upstander, like checking in with Makai about how he wants the situation addressed or speaking privately to the client about the remark. Conversely, reacting rashly and calling out the client in front of the team has a negative outcome.
