Operation seeing ourselves
“Operation Seeing Ourselves”

  • #1 Priority in our Army and we must be part of the solution

  • USAREUR CG emphasis on Readiness and Resilience


“Leaders must develop systems to "see" their units, and understand the extent to which their leadership promotes a positive command climate for all Soldiers. I urge everyone to start a conversation within your unit or organization, among leaders, peers, and subordinates and with family and friends to better understand one another's experiences and to develop better solutions to this problem.”

The process
The Process

  • The “Tiger Teams” consist of 25 Officers, Warrant Officers, and senior NCOs split into 4 teams

  • A consolidated list of questions and data points are administered and tracked to provide statistical evidence lending credence to recommended mitigation strategies

  • Each team is tasked to coordinate with Battalion Command leadership for rosters and office space to conduct private one-on-one interviews with the target populace (94% female/6% male)

  • Each Team is outfitted with SHARP reps and all have received a block of instruction including: SHARP training, ROE briefs from CID, Legal, MPI and the Brigade Leadership

  • BDE/BN CDR’s/CSMs are debriefed daily by the Teams, synched with CID, SHARP and legal, ensuring all allegations are handled properly and victims are cared for

Bystander Intervention Training


Lifecycle of Sexual Assault

Bystander Effect:

A social psychological phenomenon that refers to cases in which individuals do not offer any means of help to a victim when other people are present. The probability of help is inversely related to the number of bystanders. In other words, the greater the number of bystanders, the less likely it is that any one of them will help.

Diffusion of Responsibility:

A psychological phenomenon in which people are less likely to take action or feel a sense of responsibility in the presence of a large group of people. Essentially, in a large group, people feel that individual responsibility to intervene is lessened because it is shared by all of the onlookers.

At any one of these points someone could have intervened and stop the sexual assault from happening.
