Workshop: How To Be An Active Bystander

Witnessed violence but didn’t know how to react? We all have the capacity to be someone who does something in the face of inequality in all of its forms.

Join us for a workshop about the role of the bystander in preventing violence before it occurs and/or calling out behaviour that is problematic in safe and respectful ways.

We will discuss:

  • Leaning into our personal leadership
  • Who is a bystander?
  • How can you be someone who does something?
  • Our collective pledge to be the change

MATE is an education and intervention program teaching us all to be leaders in the prevention of violence and problematic behaviour.

The bystander approach focuses not on the perpetrator or victim of violence rather, what we can all do to prevent violence in our homes, workplaces, schools and communities

Brought to you by WOW Australia in partnership with the MATE Program Griffith University Queensland.
