University of Cape Town (UCT) students and staff are encouraged to get involved in a range of training and education initiatives run by the Office for Inclusivity & Change (OIC). The training initiatives have been developed with the long-term aim of ensuring that UCT is free from sexism, sexual assault and sexual harassment, and are based on best practice and current research.

A significant focus of the training and education initiatives is primary prevention. This means the modules are designed to prevent instances of sexual violence occurring in the first place. Some training modules also focus on appropriate immediate and long-term responses following sexual violence, known as secondary and tertiary prevention, which may lessen negative impacts.

The OIC is always expanding their training and education offerings so that information and education can be tailored to meet the needs of our diverse communities.

The 2020 training initiatives are:

  • Critical diversity
  • Unconscious bias training
  • Sexual harassment in the workplace
  • Employment equity for chairs, HODs and deans
  • Disability awareness & sensitivity training
  • Employment equity for committee members
