Active Bystander Intervention – Facilitator Workshop

*Note: This session has passed. Please view the recording below.

This session is offered as part of a series of webinars focused on student wellness in partnership with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training.

This 90-minute session will take a deep dive into the Active Bystander Intervention: Training and Facilitation Guide. Participants will learn how to navigate the resource, explore facilitation tips, test activities, and have time for discussion and connection. We encourage participants to review the resource ahead of time, if possible, and to come with any questions or ideas for implementation on their campus. This session is appropriate for professional staff members as well as student facilitators.


Meaghan Hagerty (she/her) has a master of science in global health and is currently a doctoral student in community engagement, social change, and equity at UBC Okanagan. Between these degrees, Meaghan worked at Thompson Rivers University in roles connected to wellness and sexualized violence prevention and response. To balance out homework (or as procrastination tools), Meaghan likes to get outside, plan hypothetical trips for the future, watch The Bachelor and The Bachelorette with a running feminist critique, and spend time with her people and their dogs.

Amber Huva (she/her) is on parental leave until November 2021 from her position at Thompson Rivers University as sexualized violence prevention and response manager. Previous to being in this role on campus, Amber worked in the community with women and children fleeing violence as well as with youth and adults experiencing homelessness, poverty, and concerns around mental health and substance use. Amber has a master’s degree in social work and has been in the field for close to 15 years. This year Amber grew a pandemic veggie garden, and it was marvelous. When she’s not busy caring for small kiddos or watching Netflix, she likes getting out to paddle and hike.
