On January 19 and 20, Simmons Center for Gender in Organizations (CGO) provided Bystander Awareness Training to the Five College Consortium at Amherst College. Bystander Awareness Training provides specific examples and skills of civil courage to empower bystanders to take on a challenging but important role in creating a more inclusive and diverse culture. Bystander training emphasizes the impact that all people, not just managers, have in addressing instances of bias and harassment in the workplace and other settings.
CGO provides both training workshops and Train-the-Trainer workshops in Bystander Awareness.
