Learn to be a better MATE

Australia’s leading training program for the prevention of violence, discrimination and racism is now being offered to all Flinders University staff and students. MATE bystander awareness and intervention eLearning training is a part of the University’s Respect.Now.Always. Safety on Campus program, and will help Flinders in our commitment to preventing, responding, and providing support to students and staff who experience sexual assault and sexual harassment at Flinders.

MATE aims to raise awareness around the ways in which abusive behaviour is embedded in our culture as well as the subtler issues that support a potentially harmful environment. The program challenges the root attitudes, beliefs and behaviours that normalise violence against women, inequality, racism, discrimination and bullying within society.

An initiative of Griffith University’s Violence Research and Prevention Program, MATE has been developed in response to the latest research into the causes and consequences of violence, discrimination and racism as well as the best practice approaches to understanding, controlling and preventing it.
