Work with the eSafety Commissioner to deliver education and training in response to technology-facilitated abuse
Fourth Action Plan actions
- Respond to sexual violence and sexual harassment
- 13 Prevent sexual violence and sexual harassment before it happens through national and targeted initiatives that promote informed consent, bodily autonomy and respectful relationships.
- 15 Strengthen the capacity of all sectors to address sexual harassment to ensure women are safe at work, while studying, in public and online.
What are we doing?
Recognising the increase of technology-facilitated abuse, the Tasmanian Government will support and promote eSafety education and training opportunities in Tasmania.
- Work with the eSafety Commissioner to deliver education and training in response to technology-facilitated abuse is an action under Safe Homes, Families, Communities: Tasmania’s action plan for family and sexual violence 2019–2022 (Safe Families, Homes, Communities), which invests $26 million over three years from 2019–20 to 2021–22 to prevent and respond to family and sexual violence in Tasmania.
What is next?
Safe Homes, Families, Communities actions commenced implementation on 1 July 2019.
Key milestones for 2019–20 include:
- Deliver three statewide eSafety4Women workshops for frontline specialist and mainstream services.
What difference will we make?
The Tasmanian Government is committed to strengthening efforts to change the attitudes, behaviours and power imbalances that lead to violence; and to working with communities to drive generational change.
By working with the eSafety Commissioner to deliver education and training in response to technology-facilitated abuse, it is intended that there will be:
- Increased awareness of the importance of respectful relationships;
- Increased awareness that sexual violence and sexual harassment is a workplace issue; and
- Increased promotion of sexual violence primary prevention activities and key messages in Tasmania.
