Bystander Intervention Workshop
To foster a positive culture within the lunar community, a Bystander Intervention workshop will be offered in association with the LEAG Annual Meeting. Bystander Intervention is an evidence-based framework intended to reduce the burden of protecting oneself from harassment and shift the responsibility to the community. This program was developed and will be given by scientists to increase peer-to-peer anti-harassment efforts and positive culture changes. The program goals are to 1) raise awareness of barriers, 2) raise awareness of behaviors that can help, 3) increase attendees’ motivation and desire to help, 4) help attendees develop skills and confidence when responding to various levels of harassment, and 5) ensure the safety and well-being of attendees.
The workshop will take place virtually from 1:00–5:00 p.m. EDT on August 30, the day before the LEAG Annual Meeting begins. Anyone who is registered for the LEAG Annual Meeting is welcome to join the Bystander Intervention workshop. Sign up at the link below:
