About this Event

This training has been developed by the Student Diversity and Inclusion Team, as part of the Respect. Now. Always. project. The training aims to help staff develop skills for responding to sexual harassment or sexual assault affecting students. The skills taught can also be used when responding to student distress more generally.

What is Respect. Now. Always.?

The Respect. Now. Always. (RNA) project at Macquarie aims to change our community culture, to prevent sexual assault and sexual harassment, and to improve how we respond to sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Why is this training important for staff?

The RNA training provides information so that staff can develop their capacity and confidence responding to different risks and situations.

How is the training delivered?

There are two components to the training: an online module (via ELMO) and a face-to-face workshop. You will need to complete the online ELMO before taking part in a face-to-face workshop.

When you register for a workshop, you will be given access to the ELMO module. The online module takes about 30-40 minutes to complete. It provides information, and an introduction to skills related to responding to disclosures of sexual harassment and sexual assault. Knowledge of this content is required for the face-to-face training.

The face-to-face training takes up to 90 minutes. This session is run by an external trainer, and focuses on exploring how to respond to disclosures via discussion of scenarios. This gives staff the opportunity to discuss responses, raise concerns and ask questions.

Questions? Concerns?

We understand that this training can be challenging. If you have any questions regarding the content of the training, please email the SDI team via respect@mq.edu.au.
