For anyone wanting to undertake SoundCheck Aotearoa's free and extensive Professional Respect Training around a busy work schedule, we encourage you to sign up for our upcoming March sessions on Wednesday 22nd & Wednesday 29th March. 

Online Professional Respect Training is delivered across 2 x half days (starting at 8:15am, wrapping at 1pm) over Zoom with our Sexual Harm Prevention and Response Specialists, Rachel Harrison and Mel Calvesbert. 

The training focuses on content, skills and tools to effectively prevent and respond to sexual harm in workplaces, and is free to people working in the music community.

Content covered in SCA's Professional Respect Training includes: 
  • Definitions of sexual harassment and sexual harm within New Zealand legislation

  • WorkSafe obligations and legal requirements for workplaces

  • Guidance for receiving disclosures of sexual harm and supporting survivors

  • Options and pathways for reporting sexual harm and support services available

  • Strategies for preventing sexual harm and fostering a respectful work environment

  • Practical tips for bystander intervention

Note: While the training days cater to a wide range of people and roles within the music community, they do not focus specifically on audience management or dealing with members of the public. If you manage or work in a music venue and are looking for training on these topics please get in touch and we can advise what the options are.

To date, over 300 people across Aotearoa's music community have attended our Professional Respect Training workshop. If you work in the music community of Aotearoa, we encourage you to come along and find out how you can contribute to building a safer and more inclusive music industry.
