Our active bystander course

Empower everyone in your workplace to play their part in creating a company culture that helps to prevent sexual harassment. Our training focuses on helping people understand how they can safely and appropriately step in to situations that they feel may be sexual harassment. We place an emphasis on being curious, working with compassion, asking colleagues for support when necessary and trying not to under or over react to what we've witnessed.

Give people the confidence that comes from learning from an expert. Our course is lead by our founder, psychologist Dr Nina Burrowes, a national expert on sexual harassment, sexual abuse and relationship abuse. Nina has talked about sexual harassment in parliaments, on TV, at music festivals, and in the boardroom. Her depth of knowledge and enthusiasm for the kinds of workplace cultures we can create when we're able to hold this complex and difficult issue will help your workplace create a culture where everyone can truly feel safe.  

Our online course is £35 per person (excluding VAT) with bulk discount prices offered for orders of 10 or more.

Our training can be supplemented with tailored workshops for your organisation using our train-the-trainer model.
