About the workshop

Workplace Equality and Respect (WER) Training was developed by Our Watch to support the implementation of the WER standards within a workplace setting. Our Watch is a national leader in the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia.

The training covers how gender inequality drives violence against women, the role workplaces have in preventing violence and how promoting gender equality is good for your workplace. These sessions will also allow your staff to ask questions about the changes they might see at work and how they can be involved as the standards are implemented across the workplace.
