BeVocal is a university-wide bystander intervention initiative that promotes the idea that individual Longhorns have the power to prevent high-risk behavior and harm. BeVocal is designed to address a variety of issues, including racism, sexism, mental health distress, and microaggressions. This workshop will give you the opportunity to learn about BeVocal and develop a skill set to enhance your performance in the workplace and contribute to creating a caring work environment. Over the course of the workshop, you will:
– gain a base understanding of bystander intervention theories;
– learn how to recognize harmful situations in the workplace and add strategies to your toolbox for possible ways to respond; and
– apply the steps of bystander intervention as practiced by BeVocal and receive take-home resources for future reference.
Presented by the BeVocal Initiative as part of the Student Employee Excellence Development (SEED) Program.
