Watch now: Racism at Work series – Be an Active Bystander
We all like to think that if we saw a colleague experiencing racism we would step in and stop it, right? And yet our research shows that in the vast majority of circumstances people do nothing, even when they know the behaviour is unacceptable. In this seminar, Dr Nic Hammarling explores what stops us from confronting and challenging racism, both in others and in ourselves. She also reviews the psychology of effective challenge, including some practical tools and guides on how to challenge racism and other forms of unacceptable behaviour so that by the end of the session you will have identified several tactics that you can use to effectively challenge in the heat of the moment.
