PLEASE NOTE THIS COURSE IS ONLY OFFERED AS A CLOSED ENROLLMENT. The NIH Bystander Training supports ICs with their Anti-Harassment Training Plans. This live, two-hour training focuses on equipping employees, at all levels, to transform culture by (1) preventing all forms of harassment, and (2) increasing supportive, positive interactions with the end goal of increasing safety, productivity, and retention of a diverse and talented workforce.
