Bringing in the Bystander-Training programme for doctoral students
2:15pm - 4:15pm

The University of Bath, in partnership with the SU, have launched a 2-hour training programme to tackle sexual harassment and misconduct on and off campus. We have seen through the #NeverOK campaign, and the Universities UK taskforce report how prevalent sexual harassment is on University campuses. The #MeToo and #Time’sUp movements have shown us that this is not an issue occurring solely at Universities - it is pervasive in society. This engaging, thought-provoking training course is a significant part of The University of Bath's strategy to prevent sexual harassment.
We have all been in situations where we have witnessed something that made us feel uncomfortable....but we weren't quite sure what to do about it, or we thought about a great come-back on the way home! The Bringing In The Bystander programme® gives people tools to become effective and safe bystanders, whether that is in the moment, or having a quiet word at a more opportune time.
The programme was developed by the University of New Hampshire and has been delivered at Universities across the world, with significant research demonstrating its effectiveness at encouraging attitude change and increasing bystander behaviours. This session will include discussion of scenarios specific to doctoral study and can count towards your required hours of professional development. The programme will be delivered by two trainers from the Doctoral College.
***Please be aware that course looks at case studies of sexual violence, and may be triggering or upsetting***
