A bystander is someone who witnesses something wrong happening to an individual or group and doesn’t do anything about it. An upstander intervenes when an individual or group is verbally or physically attacked or bullied by others and takes action. Being an upstander in the workplace creates belonging and allyship and improves relationships. Emtrain's Bystander Training meets Chicago's one-hour bystander intervention training requirements.

Course Description
In many situations, someone who could make an impact stands idly by, often unknowingly, participating in the bystander effect. These passive bystanders contribute to the isolation and continued poor behaviors that many fall victim to.

Luckily there is a way to turn passive witnesses into active bystanders capable of standing up to discriminatory, aggressive, or predatory behavior. That solution is bystander intervention training programs. Implementing a skills-based bystander intervention training and harassment prevention training is the best way to create an inclusive workplace culture that invites respect, value, and equality for everyone.

Emtrain’s Bystander Intervention Training is the perfect way to deliver this vital program and meet compliance training requirements and Chicago’s one-hour bystander instruction standards.
