If you witness bullying, (sexual) harassment or discrimination in the workplace or work related events, what do you do? How can you be an ally?

Bystanders who witness discrimination, (sexual) harassment or bullying in the workplace can be supportive allies for colleagues but don’t always know how to respond in the moment. Furthermore they might not respond thinking someone else will say or do something. Social psychologists describe this phenomenon as the “diffusion of responsibility’’.

In Thrive Qube’s ‘Active Bystander Training’ participants will learn how to take action to address undesirable workplace behaviours and champion for others.
