UT-CLIMBS Workplace Climate and Bystander Intervention Training

Developed as part of the NSF-ADVANCE ASCEND grant, this 2-part, 2-hour training takes place in 1-hr sessions timed about 1 month apart. Designed for faculty in STEM fields but applicable to all UT academic units, the training is designed to help faculty become more aware of the ways that intersectional social forces affect workplace dynamics in often subtle and invisible but nonetheless harmful ways. The second session is specifically focused on helping faculty develop the skills and confidence to intervene in these dynamics when they are occurring.

During the fall 2022 semester, there are two opportunities to participate in the training:

UT-CLIMBS Trainings will be held three times this semester at the following dates/times:

  • March 30 and April 13, 11:45 a.m.–12:45 p.m.
