There are three options to attend on February 29 and March 1, hosted by our partners at Lafayette, Lehigh, and Muhlenberg.  Individuals can register by February 15 directly with the site that works best for their schedules. 

Speaking Up!- Register for one of the following: 

  • February 29, 2024, 12 – 3:30 pm, Lehigh University, Health Science Technology Building, 3rd Floor, lunch included. Registration Link:

Understanding what motivates us to speak up, the challenges we face when doing so, and strategies for effective responding can help bystanders to better evaluate their options and select effective strategies.

In this dynamic workshop, attendees will first learn about bystander reactions to social biases and how these reactions can help or hinder decisions to speak up

Building on this understanding, participants will learn key strategies for speaking up that invite reflection and dialogue.

Attendees will then be invited to apply these concepts to everyday incidents of bias through facilitated interaction and discussion.
