2 Spots Left for the November 12th Difficult Conversations/Bystander Intervention Trainings

Do you struggle to intervene when you see something going on? Do you avoid difficult conversations because you're not sure how to have them or are worried they may backfire? 

UCAR's Office for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (ODEI) is holding regular Bystander Intervention and Difficult Conversations training to help prepare all staff for these kinds of conversations. In this training, we discuss the barriers that prevent us from intervening. You will learn skills and techniques to intervene in difficult workplace situations. We will provide you with a model for difficult conversations and you will practice effective ways to have these challenging conversations with supervisors, peers, and direct reports. These are stand-alone sessions and no prior experience is needed. We welcome people from all job categories and levels of seniority at the organization. 

To sign up for the November 12th session, please visit the Connect website. From the home screen, click "View the EOD training calendar and register for courses" and search for "PRO158".
