Unpacking Resistance

October 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Please note due to COVID-19 restrictions this course will be delivered online in 2 X two-hour sessions over one day.

If you work in gender equality or primary prevention of violence against women then you’ve most likely experienced backlash and resistance. Dealing with it comes with the terrain and is a normal part of any social change. That doesn’t mean that figuring out how to navigate resistance isn’t challenging, and sometimes a bit scary.

Our training will give you the confidence to respond to resistance when it arises. From denial to backlash, to understanding why people might resist gender equality work, you’ll be equipped with the strategies and skills to create meaningful and sustainable change.

What you’ll learn

  • How to identify the different forms and levels of resistance.
  • The core principles and strategies to apply when responding to forms of resistance.
  • Skills to open up dialogue and feel more confident in having challenging conversations.
  • Strategies to support your wellbeing when encountering resistance.

You’ll also receive a toolkit of tried and tested resources to help you create behavioural change in your work.

This training is for practitioners who work in the area of gender equality or in primary prevention of violence against women.
