The Active Bystander Program is a GSS-led initiative that aims to train graduate students as facilitators who will deliver Active Bystander Workshops to fellow graduate students on how they can help stop sexual assaults on campus.
Facilitators lead workshops designed to provide the following outcomes to fellow UBC graduate students:
Help empower fellow students on how to respond to discriminatory and hurtful language and behavior as they witness it
Understand the social elements that allow for sexual assault to exist
Explain active bystanding and the bystander effect
Develop the ability to identify situations where action is needed and have the tools to act
