Every single one of us plays a role in violence prevention—whether it’s something we’re exposed to directly or not. We want you to have the ability to recognise when a problematic situation is taking place and feel empowered to effectively interrupt the behaviour, providing it is safe for you to do so.

Based on best practice, this workshop will teach people to become proactive bystanders who have the tools and understanding to step in and address problematic behaviour, prevent violence against women, racism and discrimination and promote equality. Participants will be presented with real-world and industry-relevant scenarios that enable them to put the MATE bystander intervention framework into practice.
