Upstander Education

Wed. Sep. 22 10:00 AM - Wed. Sep. 22 11:00 AM
Location: Zoom

The Faculty of Graduate Studies and Human Rights and Diversity Officers, Stacey Belding and Hemali Kreuger Vyas, are hosting an “Upstander Education” Zoom seminar, which will offer information and training on:

- understanding the bystander effect - learning the difference between being a bystander and an upstander 
defining various forms of sexual violence as per the Criminal Code of Canada, Human Rights Code, and the UW Respectful Working and Learning Environment and Sexual Violence Prevention Policies
- unpacking the current social climate of victim-blaming and trivializing sexual assault.

We strongly encourage all graduate students to attend this seminar, as they will both gain some valuable education on this topic and learn about the resources that are available for survivors.  In particular, we are urging all TAs, lab demonstrators, and tutors to attend this session, as students with whom they are working might approach them with disclosures of sexual misconduct and they would be expected to know the UW policies on responding to such disclosures.
