We Stand Together – Resilience Against Racism Workshops

Here are some upcoming programs that may be of interest to you and your members.

Resilience Against Racism Workshops(flyer attached)

We are launching a series of workshops for the Monash community which will provide the opportunity for community members to learn skills in how to respond if affected by racism and racist behaviour.  The sessions provide the opportunity to empower the participants and build their skills and confidence to speak up by being an active bystander and support others.

The idea for these workshops and the We Stand Together campaign was generated by the Monash Multicultural Advisory Committee, and the growing need to support members of Monash’s culturally diverse community that are experiencing racism, and to support the whole of our community to take a stand and speak up against it.

Five in-person workshops will take place at our Clayton Community Centre, Cooke Street, Clayton. The workshops are free, but bookings are essential. You can choose to attend one, some or all sessions.

All workshops run from 6.30-8.30pm on the below dates.


           Book online for this FREE session via Trybooking:

Resilience Against Racism: Reframe & Empower

Tuesday 29 August 2023 | 6.30pm – 8.30pm | Clayton Community Centre, Library Meeting Room, 9-15 Cooke Street, Clayton 3168

The impact of challenging emotions may linger long after a racism incident.

This workshop supports you to develop the skills to make sense of your incident and the ability to shift any challenging thoughts and direct them positively to create change.                       This may include negative self-talk after adversity and regain optimism in life.

Who are suitable for this workshop:

  • people who have experienced racism
  • direct witnesses to racism
  • indirect witness to racism (for example, hear incidents through friends or media)
