Active Bystander

4 hour workshop 

This workshop will help you address everyday sexism and attitudes that contribute to gender-based violence.  

An active bystander can be a friend, family member, colleague, or stranger. Being an active bystander sends a message that violence against women is everyone’s business and that everyone has a positive role to play in eliminating it. Additionally, you will explore the causes, prevalence, and impact of domestic violence, sexual harassment, and other forms of violence against women. 

Responding to Disclosures: A Safe and Supported Workplace

3.5 hour workshop

This workshop is designed to support you to respond to an initial disclosure of family violence or sexual harassment in a safe and supportive way within the workplace. 

You will build your capability to support co-workers who are experiencing family violence and or sexual harassment. This is especially important as disclosures of gendered violence are common after or during violence prevention training and/or workplace change programs.
