BRIGHT training

In semester one, BRIGHT will be delivered online using Zoom.

BRIGHT Online

BRIGHT Online is an interactive virtual workshop aimed at supporting respectful relationships and gender equality in our community. We encourage all students to register for a Zoom session to enhance their understanding of gender-based violence, recognising harmful behaviour and to know how to intervene safely. Upon completion of the workshop you will have enhanced knowledge, skills and confidence to be positive agents for change.

This session will focus on:

  • understanding the link between gender inequality and gender-based violence
  • developing your confidence to challenge problem behaviours, comments and attitudes in various situations
  • providing practical bystander tools to challenge any form of discrimination and harassment
  • learning how to appropriately respond to a disclosure of sexual assault
  • identifying the role and capacity of a responder to a disclosure of sexual assault
  • learning about the resources, reporting options and support services that are available through our community networks for victims and survivors.

You’ll be given the chance to discuss many different scenarios that may occur in our community and provided with the opportunity to work through solutions with other students.

Audience: all students
Duration: 90 minutes
