Active Bystander Training - Monday 3 June -12:45 - 13:45 & 14:15-15:15

Are you equipped with skills to respond to inappropriate behaviour in the workplace?
Racism, bullying, sexual harassment and other inappropriate behaviours contribute to a toxic culture. It can be deeply corrosive and damaging if these behaviours and attitudes are normalised over time. That’s why it’s essential for everyone to know how to speak up when problems arise.
This innovative and award-winning training gives you the skills to challenge unacceptable behaviours.
The Active Bystander Training Company has delivered sessions to thousands of people around the world and will be running 2 bespoke workshops at BCS 2024. These sessions will be tailored to those working in Cardiology and specific situations that you may encounter in the workplace.
All BCS delegates are warmly invited to register for this invaluable opportunity.
Please note, this is an interactive and sought after course but places are limited to 25 people per session. If you register and later find that you are unable to attend, we request that you notify us ASAP via at the very latest 48 hours prior to the event, in order that your place can be offered to someone on the waiting list.
This course will be held in room Central 5. Please note that you must first register for the conference before booking the course, otherwise your booking will be cancelled.
