Event description

Description

The University of Bath, in partnership with the SU, run a 2-hour training programme to tackle sexual harassment and misconduct on and off campus. We have seen through the #NeverOK campaign, and the Universities UK taskforce report how prevalent sexual harassment is on University campuses. The #MeToo and #Time’sUp movements have shown us that this is not an issue occurring solely at Universities - it is pervasive in society.

This engaging, thought-provoking training course is a significant part of The University of Bath's strategy to prevent sexual harassment.

We have all been in situations where we have witnessed something that made us feel uncomfortable....but we weren't quite sure what to do about it, or we thought about a great come-back on the way home! The Bringing In The Bystander programme® gives people tools to become effective and safe bystanders, whether that is in the moment, or having a quiet word at a more opportune time.

The programme was developed by the University of New Hampshire and has been delivered at Universities across the world, with significant research demonstrating its effectiveness at encouraging attitude change and increasing bystander behaviours. This session will include discussion of scenarios specific to our work context in Student Services.

***Please be aware that course looks at case studies of sexual violence, and may be triggering or upsetting***

Your trainers will be Josh Callander from Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Eleanor Parker from Student Services.

If you have any questions about this session, or have any additional requirements that may require reasonable adjustments, please contact Josh on J.A.Callander@bath.ac.uk
