active bystander imagesThis innovative and high impact Active Bystander session will empower students to challenge poor behaviours which they may experience - or witness as a third party. Specifically, they will be given the tools to overcome fear and paralysis in challenging situations to help them decide how to respond or intervene - and they will learn advanced language techniques to build their confidence and help them to communicate assertively. This training will help to create a safe and supportive community.

PhD students additional session - Communication, Respect and Culture

In an international environment like Imperial, misunderstandings can occur without people realising. These are usually based on language - especially if at least one party is not speaking English as a native language - and culture, where norms can often be different. This course will help students navigate those language nuances to ensure better and more effective communication.

Training length: 2 hours (this session can be a “bolt on” to the Active Bystander Session for PhD students)

Group size: up to 25 students per group.

Recommended timing: Prior to Early Stage Assessment (within first nine months)
