​Overview:

This conference will offer practical assistance to institutions to tackle violence against women, harassment and hate crime affecting students and for responding to student concerns. One year on from the release of Changing the culture: Report of the Universities UK Taskforce examining violence against women, harassment and hate crime affecting university students​, it will help delegates to discuss what has happened in this year, and to evaluate and develop their own policies and processes.​

Why now?

This conference will be an opportunity to discuss the recommendations one year on from their release, to examine what has happened in the last year, and to develop what needs to happen next to continue to address violence against women, harassment and hate crime affecting students. Delegates will be able to share best practice on implementing and developing an institution-wide approach to harassment, violence against women and hate crime.
