The Active Witness program is an expanded student leadership program designed to give students the knowledge, skills, and confidence required to act in response to discriminatory comments or stigmatizing situations. The program not only educates students about diversity, but gives them strategies to be more than a bystander.
Active Witness Workshop Facilitator Position Description:
The Equity and Inclusion Office is currently looking for a team of 20 AW Workshop Facilitators to help us build an inclusive living and learning environment at UBC. The role of the AW Workshop Facilitator is to increase student awareness and understanding of issues surrounding intercultural competency. They will do this by instilling among individuals the skills and confidence needed to respond to discrimination. By facilitating AW workshops throughout the year, they will empower members of the UBC community to intervene when they witness comments or behavior that targets others on the basis of differences in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, language, ability, age, nationality or any other distinction.
Deadline for registration is February 9. Learn more.
