Panel discussion: Speak Up against violence and abuse

Posted on

This is a guest post by Ana Miguel Lazaro, Student Inclusivity Project Officer at UWE Bristol. Ana is part of UWE’s SpeakUp campaign, which aims to create an inclusive campus where diversity is celebrated, antisocial attitudes and behaviours are challenged and any type of harassment, assault and discrimination aren’t acceptable – and is asking you to #SpeakUp if you see or hear something that’s not right, and be an active bystander.

Monday 26th November, 15:00-17:00, Bristol Business School, 4X113, Frenchay campus

In recognition of the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25th November 2018), UWE Bristol is hosting a panel discussion to continue conversations around violence and abuse.

A new campaign called SpeakUp has been launched to help UWE Bristol students and staff speak up and report unacceptable behaviour such as harassment, discrimination and violence. SpeakUp has been introduced this term to raise awareness and prevent these types of incidents on campus.

Join us to:

  • Hear from our UWE Bristol panel of experts in the field and ask them questions
  • Learn about the SpeakUp Campaign and collect your SpeakUp badge
  • Enjoy the refreshments

The panel includes Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost Jane Harrington, Professor of Criminology Kieran McCartan, Associate Head of Department Research – Education and Childhood Helen Bovill and Chief Executive of White Ribbon UK Anthea Sully.
