- If you witness harassment or some other form of inappropriate conduct, intervene and help. Don’t be a bystander.
- Listen and learn. Accept new ideas, different people and different points of view with an open mind. Don’t think of new ideas and differences as threats, but as opportunities to learn and grow as a person.
