Spot and Stop Sexism

– Bystander training for managers and employees

Does your company have a work environment that’s free from sexism and sexual harassment? Even if your company hasn’t had any formal complaints, you can’t be sure. Zero-tolerance policies are no guarantee either.

Improve your business performance through gender equality, diversity and inclusion with On the Agenda. Research-based consulting and scalable game-inspired tools for learning, team building and business development.

The best safeguard is to create a culture that does not tolerate sexism.

 You can do it by training managers and employees to recognize sexist comments and behavior, including sexual harassment, and to intervene when they occur.

 Intervening is often the biggest challenge. This is because of the bystander effect – a psychological phenomenon that occurs when you are not the only person who sees someone in need of help. The more spectators there are, the more likely we are to believe that “someone” will do “something”. The responsibility for doing something is delegated to the other members of the group.

When sexism and sexual harassment occurs in the workplace, the problem with the bystander effect isn’t just that we don’t help the victim. Our passivity contributes to creating and maintaining a culture that tolerates sexism and harassment. Our colleagues come to believe that the workplace permits sexist behavior.
