Daniel and Tatyana answer questions from our listening audience around these talking points:

  • Is “active bystander” the same as “ally”?
  • Where did you get your definitions of bystander and ally and other terms?
  • Is someone still considered to be an ally if someone tells them about an incident and they are in a position to respond or do something – but don’t?
  • What else could bystanders have done during the murder of George Floyd?
  • What if you are naturally opposed to conflict and confrontation, but want to speak up or act? How does one “train” their brain to welcome conflict?
  • At a critical moment some people find themselves struggling with a decision to step in or not. What would you say about a situation when what’s stopping us is not knowing if another person wants our help?
  • What is key in trying to promote a culture or initiative of allyship in a
    company or workplace?
