Bystander intervention is of the utmost importance. Why? Through courageous conversations, we can disrupt and triumph over the tensions and ignorance that hinder our progress personally, professionally, and as a nation.
The goal of a courageous conversation is to deal compassionately and effectively with a sensitive issue or to change inappropriate behavior. Courageous conversations allow those involved in the discussion to keep their dignity.
