Setting the Stage Speakers
Each day, there will be leaders from social justice, education, government, and sport business that will help us “set the stage” for each day’s content. These individuals will be announced one at a time in the weeks leading up to the conference. Be on the lookout!
Spotlight segments will be strategically placed throughout the conference to illuminate specific aspects of bystander intervention. They will incorporate multi-media presentations, personal testimony, global applications and deeper pedagogical understanding of the issues.
These will not be your typical panel presentations. Rather, they will be dynamic, interactive discussions with open discussion time built in to each panel. Participants will hear from experts in the field and have the opportunity to engage the presenters. The experts will provide context and bystander intervention lessons learnd on the issues as a way to stimulate discussion.
Dynamic Shift Segments
Designed to shift the energy in the room, these dynamic shift segments will include: video clips of a Bystander Intervention programs/ initiatives/campaigns; spotlight testimonials of people utilizing Bystander Intervention strategies or failing in a tough situation; and multi-media components reinforcing the need for Bystander Intervention.
Directed Breakout Discussion: The road ahead/ Next Steps in the Field
These sessions will be an interactive meeting of academics, practitioners and advocates working together to define and address emerging issues in bystander education. In smaller working groups, participants will discuss how to integrate the bystander approach by examining where there are opportunities for growth within and outside the area of gender based violence. Facilitated by experts in their field, the various breakout sessions will allow for greater exploration of how the bystander approach can be applied to additional areas of violence prevention, education, healthy development and social justice issues.
