Bystander Awareness

This 2.5 hour training session will look at and explore what is meant by the bystander effect and discuss its impact on the lives of minoritised communities. To do this we will also cover the Equality Act 2010, issues relating to the South West, the impact of unconscious bias and the importance of allyship. Participants will breakout into rooms to discuss and contribute to the theme of the training.

The training will be facilitated by Plymouth and Devon Racial Equality Council – a charity who aim is to build a just and fair society where everyone has an equal opportunity to live, learn and learn, free from prejudice, discrimination, and racism. PDREC value diversity and work in partnership with individuals and organisations who are committed to anti-racism and race equality. One of their aims and objectives of Plymouth and Devon Racial Equality Council is to tackle racism and inequality at a strategic level and they work with organisations to help them to appraise the culture of the organisation at a systemic level and identify areas of racism and inequality. The PDREC do this by sitting on a wide range of boards at a strategic level and acting as a ‘critical friend’ to highlight areas of inequality and bring about changes to policies and service provision.

This session will be online and you will receive all information on how to join 24-48 hours before the event.
