MATE Bystander program

Griffith University was created to be a different kind of university—challenging conventions, responding to trends and pioneering solutions through innovative teaching and research. Ranking in the top 2% of universities worldwide, Griffith has come to be regarded as one of Australia's most innovative tertiary institutions and one of the most influential universities in the Asia-Pacific region. Everything we do – from education to research and community engagement – is designed to meet the new world in which everything interconnects and is focused on improving people’s lives.

MATE is designed on best practices developed over two decades of delivering gender-based violence prevention education training with diverse and varying populations. MATE training challenges root attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that normalise problematic behavior, and creates a safe environment for people to share their opinions and experiences about these volatile issues. The MATE Bystander Training teaches people to become proactive bystanders who have the capacity and understanding to step in and address problematic behavior, prevent violence against women, racism and discrimination and promote equality. We present participants with real-world scenarios that enable them to put the MATE bystander intervention framework into practice.
