The Give Respect Initiative
Monash established the Give Respect Initiative following the release of the 2017 Change the Course Report (pdf, 17.3 mb) by the Australian Human Rights Commission. Give Respect was a multi-disciplinary research project undertaken by academics in law, general practice Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (MNHS), social work MNHS, and marketing – along with students.
The aim of the Initiative was to increase awareness, co-create training resources with students, and promote respectful behaviours at Monash University and throughout the wider community.
As part of an ongoing commitment to create a respectful, safe and equal community, Respectful Communities and the Give Respect Initiative have developed the Give Respect Art Competition.
