Bystander Intervention Training
Thursday, September 29, 2022
In partnership with the Bow Valley Harmony Project, Banff and Lake Louise Hospitality Association (BLLHA) is presenting a 3-hour Bystander Intervention Training session. This three-hour session will address how to be an engaged and active bystander, the importance of supporting victims and the effects that trauma can have on a person, drink spiking and creating safer establishments in the community. Participants will explore the root causes of sexual violence, learn about consent, policies, and legal obligations to address sexual harassment. This workshop will also highlight factors that may prevent people from intervening, strategies to address harassment that empowers the person who is experiencing harassment and focuses on the roles of bystanders in the workplace and community. Open to employees and employers in Banff & Lake Louise, free of charge. Space is limited with preference to BLLHA members, registration required.
