Racism and Culture Competency

Challenging Racism

Bystander anti-racism is action taken by ordinary people in response to incidents of interpersonal or systemic racism.

Our Bystander Anti-Racism Training packages are designed to meet the needs of diverse stakeholders in addressing and preventing challenges that can arise when diversity is not well managed. The training focuses on understanding and identifying racism as well as evidence based strategies to counter racist incidents that take place in personal, work and public settings. The training has been developed using empirical research findings from bystander anti-racism training conducted by the Challenging Racism Project.

The bystander anti-racism training embeds racism literacy and anti-racism bystander measures to offer practical responses to racism within organisations.

Training on bystander anti-racism action:

  • Unpacks understandings of race and racism
  • Instructs on forms of bystander action
  • Develops bystander anti-racism skills
  • Generates bystander anti-racism confidence

While there are many multicultural and cultural diversity training for workplaces, we have identified an urgent need for anti-racism training. Such specialised training does not currently exist elsewhere in Sydney.
