Equipping communities with the tools and confidence to address harmful and abusive behaviour

MATE is designed on best practices developed over two decades of delivering gender-based violence prevention and education training with diverse and varying populations. MATE training can be facilitated for up to 40 participants for anywhere between two and six hours.
The Program aims to raise awareness of the level of abusive behaviour in our culture as well as the subtler issues that support a harmful and abusive environment. We will challenge the root attitudes, beliefs and behaviours that normalise problematic behaviour and create a safe environment for people to share their opinions and experiences about these volatile issues. Ultimately, we seek to inspire leadership by empowering participants with the tools to feel confident in addressing harmful and abusive behaviour.
