Back To Schedule
Thursday, May 20 • 1:50pm - 2:50pm
Equity and Inclusion Panel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We all like to consider ourselves helpful people, but are we always quick to lend a hand whenever the opportunity arises? This panel discussion will focus on bystander intervention approaches within the context of academic libraries. What strategies and resources are available? What do we look for and how do we combat a situation? When do you call someone out or in? The panelists will center on how one can become an active mediator through sharing their experiences and thoughts on bystander intervention approaches.

*This session will not be recorded for later viewing.*
