Attend this Westminster Briefing event to hear the latest thinking on how institutions, students' unions and other groups are tackling issues such as harassment and victimisation, as part of a wider push to confront sexism and lad culture on campus. This is the ideal opportunity to engage with instructions from across the country, expand your knowledge of the issues and learn from current good practice.

Key issues to be addressed:

  • A whole-institution approach to tackling bullying, harassment and victimisation
  • Understanding the legal responsibilities that institutions have in this area
  • Lessons from the NUS’s Lad Culture Audit: What can we learn going forward?
  • Developing an appropriate and effective response channel to sexual harassment and violence issues that arise on and around campus
  • Comprehensive support for students who have suffered bullying, harassment or victimisation
  • Implementing effective procedures for reporting incidents
  • Leadership in institutions and partnership with the local community
  • What might national-level action on ‘lad culture’ and harassment look like?
  • What are institutions and students unions doing in this area?
  • Good practice case studies to take back to share with colleagues
  • New and innovative approaches to tackle the issues faced by your university
  • What training should staff have?

The event:

The morning session will brief you on issues with a national focus. The afternoon session will present examples that can inspire further work in your own institution.

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.
