MATE – LGBTIQ+ Cultural Change Workshop

  • 4 hours - 2 days
  • Up to 40
  • Pricing: $4,000

This MATE option incorporates an LGBTIQ+ sensitive discussion around gendered/domestic/family/sexual violence, nuances and complexities faced by and/or within the community, and bystander approaches to prevent violence as a community member or ally.

The content educates participants on the dynamics that sit within sexual and gender diverse relationships and the way these dynamics differ from cis-heterosexual relationships. It also discusses how traditional gender binaries negatively impact those within the LGBTIQ+ community.

Importantly, participants learn how to be an active bystander to prevent violence within the LGBTIQ+ community and how to promote inclusive homes, schools, workplaces and communities.

The LGBTIQ+ workshop can be incorporated into a heteronormative workshop or it can be provided separately.

The MATE team can work with your organisation to determine the appropriate option.
