Being an Active Bystander
March 14 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm$15.00
Have you ever been in a conversation when someone said something biased or factually incorrect, but you were not sure how to respond? Most of us struggle to address these situations – or simply remain silent.
As a part of the commitment to Becoming Beloved Community, St. John’s, Worthington, in collaboration with the Kirwan Institute at Ohio State University, will present a training workshop on how to tactfully speak out when you hear biased statements or conversations.
This training seeks to empower and equip participants to speak out with tact and effectiveness in such moments. Participants will learn how to respond through the employment of strategies that can be tailored to the situation at hand with precision, yet devoid of undue emotion.
LENA TENNEY, Coordinator of Public Engagement for The Ohio State University Kirwin Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, will be our presenter. Lena is a trained intergroup dialogue facilitator, with a background in inclusive education and coalitional activism. Lena is a widely published author and travels nationally to facilitate workshops on implicit bias, structural racism, and being an active bystander.
Registration fee is $15, which includes lunch and materials. Download this flyer and return registration form with fee by March 11.
