About this Event

Are you a woman in public life wishing to have a flourishing online presence but still wish to keep your personal private? Do you avoid social media because of the fear of online abuse? Then this workshop is for you!

Glitch is offering you the chance to experience its esteemed Digital Resilience Training. Our training is tailored to women and girls who are currently in or considering leadership roles, public appointments or public life and activism, who wish to have a positive online presence without suffering the negative impact of online abuse. Whether you’re a YouTuber, influencer or activist your online life shouldn’t come at the expense of your wellbeing.

Statistics consistently show that women are 27 times more likely to be harassed online, and this number increases significantly for women of colour, making it crucial for women to be educated about the issue and empowered to defend themselves against abuse and report the perpetrators effectively. In this two hour interactive session you will learn vital Digital Self-Defence techniques, including how to effectively document abuse.

You will also learn about the importance of implementing Digital Self-Care and sticking to it. You will learn how to set and stick to personal digital boundaries and have a flourishing online presence without compromising on your health or happiness. You’ll come away with practical tools and increased control over your online presence, resulting in a happier, healthier relationship with the digital space.

As online gender-based violence (OGBV) is an issue that disproportionately affects women and girls with multi-intersecting identities and marginalised communities, Glitch would like to extend a particularly warm welcome to individuals from these groups.

Please arrive by 6pm for a 6:30pm start. The session will conclude at 8:30pm.

We have received a grant by Doteveryone that will enable us to support travel and/or caring costs for those who come from low socio-economic backgrounds, young mothers and young carers.
