Learn to be a better MATE.

Australia’s leading violence, discrimination and racism prevention training program is now on offer for all Flinders staff and students via FLO. MATE – bystander awareness and intervention eLearning training is part of our 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.

To learn more about the training, visit the Health Counselling Disability Services and Oasis – Student Community Wellbeing Centre stall at FUSA’s re-launch event for the Be A Better Human campaign, to be held on the ground floor of The Hub on Tuesday 23 August.

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.

Whilst the content is valuable in and of itself, students can also earn Horizon points for completion of the program.
