ETHICAL BYSTANDERS: Preventing sexual violence in the music industry

This month, the music industry charity, Support Act launched their inaugural Ethical Bystander Training program.

The course, that teaches the skills required to call out and intervene when witnessing derogatory comments, harassment or violent conduct, has proven so popular that almost all courses are now booked out.

There are, however, limited places still available for sessions on 14 December and an additional session on 12 October.

The online training is held from 9.30 am -12.00 pm and is free to attend. You can register by visiting their website.

Support Act is Australia’s only charity delivering crisis relief services to artists, crew and music workers as a result of ill health, injury, a mental health problem, or some other crisis that impacts their ability to work in music.

The organisation is also offering further training to people who would like more in-depth information, including a Leadership in Action course for those who seek to be at the forefront of industry change.
