RCR Forum: Becoming an Upstander (GS 715.02)

In order to help create a culture of respect and civility, we need to learn how to “step in” when we see harmful or disrespectful behaviors. Through presentation, discussion, and role plays, we’ll consider barriers to intervening, explore different ways we can intervene, and then share tips for moving forward. This workshop is highly interactive and attendees should be prepared to actively participate on camera.

Workshop size is limited to 25 participants to facilitate small group discussion. Because space is limited, please do not register unless you are sure you can attend. Zoom meeting details will be shared with confirmed registrants. 

Melissa Segal, LCSW, is CEO of InterHuman Solutions and a licensed clinical social worker who has provided individual, couples, and family counseling; facilitated a variety of support and educational groups; and implemented professional development and training.

Participation in this workshop earns 2 hours of RCR credit for Graduate School students. Note that you will not receive credit if you arrive for this event late or sign off early. Zoom meeting details will be shared in the registration confirmation message, and you will need to authenticate to the Zoom meeting with your Duke email.

This event is part of The Graduate School's Race and Bias Conversations and the Mentoring and Communication Series co-sponsored with the Office of Postdoctoral Services. Questions? Contact the professional development team at
