Genderweek20: Act against sexual harassment: bystander intervention training 

The #metoo movement has broken the silence on harassment and shown its prevalence in all spheres of society. Harassment and sexual violence in universities and educational settings have been widely studied in the US and the UK. Everyone has a role to play in countering harassment. Beyond policies and reporting mechanisms, one tool has proved its effectiveness when it comes to harassment prevention: bystander intervention trainings.   

During this workshop, we will talk about: 

  • how to identify harassment as a student and be aware of its warning signs using the Red Flag System developed in Period’s “It’s Not That Grey” Guide on sexual harassment 
  • concrete tools and methods to intervene as a bystander to stop harassment from developing further 
  •  how to create positive change by changing the culture around harassment and sexual violence in your own surrounding 

The workshop is hosted by external training Juliette Sanchez-Lambert, one of the authors of the book “Its not that grey” and is open to all students of all genders.   
Duration: 1 hour training, possibility to stay half an hour longer for specific cases or informal talk with the author.
