Event description
ScreenMATE is an educational workshop designed to teach how to recognise abuse and harmful behaviours, and have the confidence to speak out.

About this Event

We welcome all men, women and non-binary people who would like to have a wider knowledge of these issues. We believe that shared language and shared knowledge empowers us all to create cultural change and safer work spaces.

What is ScreenMATE?

The ScreenMATE Bystander Program is based on the successful MATE Bystander Program delivered by Griffith University. ScreenMATE is an educational workshop designed to teach community members how to recognise abuse and harmful behaviours, and have the confidence to speak out and offer help. It brings each individual in to the conversation to think critically and with empathy about the root attitudes and beliefs that underpin harmful gender stereotypes. The trained facilitators create a safe space to allow individuals to share their experiences and opinions about these issues. Areas covered in the workshops include:-

• Language and Jokes

• Abusive Relationships

• What Lies Beneath?

• Gender Equality

• Online Harassment

• Pornography

• Sexual Harassment

• Sexual Assault

• Racism & Discrimination

• Victim Blaming & Shaming

• Bullying and Harassment

• General Violence
