1 hour Webinar - Ethical Bystander Intervention

An ethical bystander is an individual whose behaviour intervenes in ways that positively impact the event and its outcome. We all have a role when it comes to preventing sexual, domestic and family violence.

Offensive jokes, derogatory language, and sexual harassment create an environment in which rape, abuse and assault become permissible. Jokes and language affect how we perceive these issues, and in turn how we respond.

A 1 hour tailored webinar will help professional: 

  • Understand the role of psychologically safe workplaces in achieving gender equality;
  • Identify jokes, derogatory language and harassing behaviours which can normalise violence;
  • Recognise when someone needs help and ;
  • Gain skills in safe intervention methods.

This webinar will be presented by NSW Rape and DV Service, Natasha Mikitas, Training and Professional Services Manager. Hosted: Angela Hall, White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation Program, South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD).
