This paper explores some of the challenges, tensions and opportunities in workplace-based programs for the primary prevention of violence against women, based on findings from program evaluation.

The purpose of this paper is twofold: firstly, it will inform the continuous improvement of Women’s Health Victoria’s Take a Stand program to ensure it remains consistent with current evidence and good practice. Secondly, it is anticipated that the findings will contribute to the evidence base on effective primary prevention practice in general, particularly in the context of the current focus in Victoria on workplaces as a key setting for the prevention of family violence and violence against women, and on bystander approaches to primary prevention.
