Effective Ways to be an Active Bystander
It doesn’t matter how you do it, just do it.
- Direct - Be upfront and address comments or behaviors directly.
- Distract – Redirect attention to diffuse the situation.
- Delegate – Make others aware of the situation. Ask someone you trust to intervene if you don’t feel comfortable.
- Delay – It’s okay to approach someone after a situation has happened. If you freeze in the moment, ask to speak with them after.
