This three-hour active bystander training supports participants to speak up when confronted with everyday sexism and sexual harassment, and as well as a range of behaviours and attitudes that justify, excuse, blame, trivialise or minimise violence against women.
This training takes participants through the causes, prevalence and impact of domestic violence, sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women. Participants are provided with bystander tools to build the skills and confidence to take a stand and speak out against violence-supportive attitudes and behaviours.
