Bystander Intervention Workshops
The Rise Above the Pack campaign, in its effort to contribute to positive social change, has a focus on positive bystander intervention. Bystander Intervention Workshops have been developed and delivered by YWCA Adelaide, to men and women in workplaces and community groups.
These evidence based and interactive workshops, delivered by a male and female facilitator, empower participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to safely intervene in situations where the respect or safety of women is in question, and to challenge anti-social behaviour based on gender inequitable attitudes.
The Bystander Intervention workshops enable workplaces and community members to contribute to the prevention of violence against women and gender inequality.
YWCA Adelaide also provides workplaces with a evaluation summary and report of the workshops based on evaluation data from the participants.

Quotes from Workshop participants:
I thought the strategies were really practical. I really liked that there were a male and female presenter – both were excellent.
Very enlightening. Made me question my tolerance for certain behaviours such as casual sexist jokes.
Facilitators were fantastic. Very encouraging of an interactive workshop. Very knowledgeable. I feel more prepared to intervene.
Not as confronting as I thought the session might have been.
Liked the mix of presentation – verbal, interactive and videos. Good to have gender representation in presenters.
