WILD Lamplighter Coalition to Hold Bystander Training Webinar

The WILD Lamplighter Coalition and harassment-prevention consultants from Alteristic will host a webinar to help women in the workforce deal with uncomfortable situations in the professional environment, plus what to do or who to turn to when dealing with harassment. In the Bystander Skills Building Workshop, these experts will review the barriers to intervention and the three Ds (Direct, Distract, Delegate), while giving attendees an opportunity to hone their skills with real-world scenarios and role-playing.

Aligning with the mission of Lamplighter Coalition’s “Be Aware, Be There” campaign, workshop attendees will learn how they can help stop, repudiate, and prevent sexual harassment in social and professional environments. Attendees will be equipped with the skills and motivation needed to:

•  recognize and respond to behaviors that could lead to or constitute harassment,

• acknowledge barriers that may prevent action and develop realistic options for intervening, and

• identify ways they can utilize their spheres of influence to establish a climate of dignity and respect

These workshops will be led by Alteristic, a nonprofit committed to preventing all forms of interpersonal violence in professional environments. Alteristic has been working directly with WILD to address the specific needs of our industry. The Lamplighter Coalition is a growing program that aims to create awareness around sexual harassment and its prevalent nature in professional culture, and provide tools and resources to help lighting industry members stop, repudiate, and prevent sexual harassment in social and professional environments.

There are three Zoom workshop dates to choose from that will allow attendees to dive deeper with highly interactive material, creating a safe and constructive environment to share and learn. You only need to attend one. Register for your preferred time and date ASAP, as space is limited. Sign up here
