In this webinar, the eSafety Commissioner will share content from their Training for university support staff and Workplace harms packages to help SAGE subscribers create a safer online environment for their staff and students.

The training aims to:

  • provide an overview of the key functions of the eSafety Commissioner
  • identify strategies to assist those impacted by adult cyber abuse, image-based abuse and technology-facilitated abuse
  • provide guidance on how to prevent, prepare and respond to online safety incidents using the Toolkit for Universities
  • give an overview of the Women In The Spotlight (WITS) program which provides training and resources to raise awareness about gendered online abuse
  • highlight Safe Work Australia online workplace safety guidance, codesigned with eSafety
  • share eSafety resources to support staff wellbeing.

This training aligns with our collective action approach to preventing and responding to sexual harassment, as agreed upon at the SAGE Key Leaders’ Roundtable.


Thursday 14 October 2021, 12 to 1 pm AEDT

Who can attend

Any staff member or student at a SAGE subscriber institution, provided they are at least 18 years old.
