Details:

  • Khatidja and Kelly will give an overview of the prevalence and impact of sexual violence on students in UK universities and the priorities for tackling sexual violence on campus. One of the report’s key priorities is primary prevention with bystander intervention and it is recommended for adoption at UK universities. The presentation will give a taster of what the bystander intervention is. The intervention was piloted in two schools at UCLan in 2017/18 with positive results and it is currently being run in three schools across two faculties.

  • Fiona Drouet is the mother of Emily Drouet and a campaigner for policy and procedural reviews, staff training, support pathways and data collection. Emily took her own life after being subject to bullying, harassment and sexual violence while living in the University campus.

  • Winnie M Lee is an author and activist who advocates in tackling sexual violence. Her debut novel, Dark Chapter, is a fictional retelling of her own rape from victim and perpetrator perspectives.

  • The Student Union representative will present a critical analysis of the effectiveness of the Hate Crime Project in 2018/19 and how it will continue in 2019/20.

  • Student Wellbeing Services will present the online reporting platform Report and Support implemented recently and explain what the objectives of this initiative are and how the reporting will be effectively managed.
