Join the Racial and Social Justice in LIS Meetup and let’s discuss “The Bystander Effect” and what can you do to become a more active bystander in your library.
We will divide our time between discussing what the Bystander Effect is and what strategies to use when witnessing situations that require empathy to defuse or intervene in a situation.
We will break into small groups, go over scenarios and talk about which strategies to use.
The intention of this meetup is to provide a comfortable space where members can share their experience and strategies when witnessing or being the receiver of bullying.
