Our Voice is the name of the University’s Active Bystander campaign, encouraging students, faculty and staff to take positive steps in intervention when they witness inappropriate behavior. As a University community, we can alter behavior and alter what is considered an acceptable cultural norm by actively and positively engaging individuals when we see or hear of problematic behavior. By ignoring problematic behavior, individuals are passively accepting it as a cultural norm. The Gender + Equality Center in conjunction with the Institutional Equity Office offer periodic training on how you can be a positive influence and an active bystander. Although the training focuses primarily on the topics of gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct, the concepts learned in the training translate to any situation. The University community is invited to join us in these training sessions.
