There are four main stages to the process of being an active bystander:
This is about being informed about what is inappropriate and noting the behaviour to oneself.
Don’t presume that the problem has been solved/underestimate its importance even if the person who is the target doesn’t say anything.
Realising that it’s your responsibility to be active in some way. Do not assume that someone else will intervene, or that because you are not causing the problem, it is not your responsibility to be part of the solution.
This can involve having had training or information on how to intervene. Refer to the “Step Up Program" in the resource section.
