Event description
Active Bystander Training: Preventing violence against women and building equal and respectful workplace cultures.

About this Event

This all day training combines two of WHIN’s fundamental training modules: 'Introduction to the Prevention of Violence against Women' and 'Active Bystander in the Workplace', and will be delivered as two three hour sessions on the day.

The morning session will introduce the key concepts related to the prevention of violence against women, as outlined by Change the Story. The session covers:

• Prevalence and impacts of violence against women

• The gendered drivers of violence against women

• The link between preventing violence against women and gender equity

• Key actions to prevent violence against women

• Policy context and local initiatives.

The afternoon session builds on the knowledge gained in the morning by developing participants’ skills and confidence as active bystanders. Drawing on bystander theory and using the WHIN Workplace Bystander Tool, participants will learn how to intervene when they observe behaviours that perpetuate gender inequality in the workplace and about managing resistance to this work.

Participants will leave the training 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. They will have increased skills and confidence to strengthen equal and respectful approaches within existing relationships and workplace activities.

This training is suitable for all audiences wanting to build their skills and challenge attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate violence against women. It aims to support staff from organisations that are members of the Building a Respectful Community Partnership, as well as other groups and organisations from Melbourne's northern region that are starting to build their work in the prevention of violence against women.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided, please notify WHIN of any dietary requirements.

WHIN is committed to offering accessible training, events and meetings. Please let us know if you have any accessibility needs.

WHIN acknowledges the support of the Victorian Government.

• Please note this training is not about responding to clients experiencing family violence. To access this training please see the Northern Integrated Family Violence Services website.
