Workplace Equality and Respect training - Prevention of Violence Against Women

For organisations that are:

  • wanting more information about workplace action to prevent violence against women and/or
  • implementing Our Watch’s Workplace Equality and Respect Standards

This training covers:

  • the prevalence, types and impacts of violence against women
  • the drivers of violence against women, including the misconceptions about what causes violence against women
  • how violence against women and gender inequality manifest and are reinforced in workplaces
  • practical actions to prevent violence against women and promote gender equality in workplaces

This training is endorsed by Our Watch and includes sessions for:

All staff (1.5 hours) to introduce the drivers of violence against women and the concept of bystander action.

Managers (2-3 hours) to recognise the powerful role managers play in influencing workplace culture and actively supporting gender equality.

Executive and senior leaders (1-2 hours) to understand workplace prevention of violence against women and the importance of resourcing for the work.

Implementation Team (4 hours) to introduce Our Watch’s Workplace Equality and Respect standards, process and tools that support implementation in their workplace.

Please note: Workplaces should also provide initial training to ensure managers and supervisors can recognise and respond to employees who are experiencing gendered violence and sexual harassment.  It is preferable this occurs prior to Workplace Equality and Respect training.
