Cultivating Respect: Stopping Bullying to Create Safer Schools

For many years, news reports have been filled with the tragic stories of young people being bullied and harassed in schools, and the terrible consequences many of them face when no one is willing to speak up. This has put a topic that was often seen as “an LGBTQ+ issue” on the radar of parents everywhere. In this learning session, participants will learn about key research on bullying, cyberbullying, and harassment, understand how much of it connects to anti-LGBTQ+ attitudes and behaviors, and learn how these incidents jeopardize all students.

This workplace-friendly session, which provides a great opportunity to collaborate with other ERGs, leaves participants with accessible ways to be a part of standing up to bullying and cyberbullying on a personal, family, and institutional level.
