Done effectively, it's precious little presentation and primarily people participating.

Just my point. We train presenters already. Facilitators? Not

Here's the TED Talk that the training is based off of: https://www.ted.com/talks/jackson_katz_violence_against_women_it_s_a_men_s_issue

This TED Talk is being touted a lot lately and quite frankly I did not find it very good. He is very emotional and invested but...much like the Bystander scenarios, is the best that can be offered in terms of setting standard?

And the military justice system carries on, finding someone NOT guilty ...
Quote
Yesterday (5 Jan 2017), Master Corporal Dustin Jackson was found not guilty by a standing court martial in Gatineau, Quebec.

The charges were related to an alleged sexual assault of a female member of the Canadian Armed Forces in Ottawa, Ontario in October, 2011, which was reported in January 2014.   
Quick Facts

    Of the two charges which were preferred by the Director of Military Prosecutions on April 13, 2015, Military Judge, Lieutenant-Colonel Louis-Vincent d’Auteuil:

        Found Master Corporal Jackson not guilty of one charge of sexual assault under section 130 of the National Defence Act (NDA) (section 271 Criminal Code of Canada).

        Found Master Corporal Jackson not guilty of one charge of having behaved in a disgraceful manner under section 93 of the NDA.

    The CAF takes all allegations of any form of sexual misconduct seriously and is committed to dealing with them as quickly as possible ...

Is 3 years an average time for sexual assault cases to go to trial in the CF?

The latest one in Shilo was 10 months from incident to charge.  Likely another year before trial. 
Done, 34 years, 43 days complete, got's me damn pension!

It makes me angry. I recently took the "respect in the CAF" course and we watch this video. While any message he had may have been good,  it is lost in the first 10 minutes with his self congratulatory , pro feminist, anti male tirade. His work maybe good but he is a terrible presenter and this is a Tedx talk for a women's empowerment group which may have tainted his message a lot.
