Active Bystander Training: Preventing violence against women and building equal and respectful workplaces

Women’s Health In the North is offering these low-cost training sessions to support organisations across Melbourne’s north to create programs, services and workplace cultures that promote equality and respect.

The training will introduce the key concepts related to gender equity and the prevention of violence against women. Participants will engage with active bystander theory and use the WHIN Workplace Bystander Tool to develop skills in challenging discriminatory behaviour and managing resistance to this work. Participants will leave the trainings with an increased understanding of how they can build actions to prevent violence against women into their day-to-day work, and the role they can play in challenging everyday sexism and gender inequality in the workplace.
