Bystander Action to Prevent Violence Against Women

About the training

This three-hour active bystander training supports participants to speak up when confronted with everyday sexism and sexual harassment 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.

What is an active bystander?

An active bystander can be a friend, family member, colleague or stranger. Being an active bystander sends a message that violence against women is everyone’s business and that everyone has a positive role to play in eliminating it.

What will this training do for you?

  • Increases your understanding and confidence to discuss domestic violence and sexual harassment with your colleagues, friends and family
  • Builds your skills to challenge attitudes and behaviours that support violence against women
  • Provides you with practical tools to be an active bystander
  • WHV’s active bystander training focuses on the most pervasive forms of violence against women, but the active bystander tools can be used to challenge any form of discrimination, harassment, or bullying. The tools are designed to reinforce healthy, respectful behaviours and focuses on what people in the workplace, communities and families can do to make a difference.

Who should attend?

This training is suitable for all audiences. Scenarios can be tailored to specific workplace, settings and community groups.

When is the next training?

This training is delivered throughout the year at Women’s Health Victoria’s training centre in Melbourne’s CBD. We also deliver the training off-site and can tailor it to a specific audience upon request.
