GIP Workshop Series: Understanding Allyship and Responding to Microaggressions through Bystander Intervention Part Two
Please join us for part two of this workshop on allyship and responding to microaggressions through bystander intervention, sponsored by the Group on Institutional Planning (GIP). Experiences of bias, harassment and microaggressions is an expanding area of focus for faculty, administrators, and leaders in the health professions as awareness of the enormous prevalence of these experiences has increased. Research on microaggressions and bias has shown to have significant negative impacts on individual confidence, physical health, and overall wellbeing. Therefore, more education and training on responding to microaggressions through bystander intervention is sorely needed in academic medicine.

Explore bystander intervention methodologies, barriers, and implicit biases to overcome as a bystander, as well as strategies to respond to microaggressions. Participants will also learn organizational strategies for implementing and maintaining bystander intervention and allyship programs (within departments, centers, and Institutes) and at the institutional level. Participants will gather both bystander intervention skills as well as generate ideas for how to institutionalize allyship behaviors for maximum impact.

Please note this webinar is 90 minutes.
