#MeToo on Campus, Manchester: Next Steps for Universities


It is unquestionable that the #MeToo movement has had an impact on UK Universities. Institutions can no longer deny their serious problem in controlling sexual misconduct on campus. 

In response to our successful London event: #MeToo On Campus: Ending Sexual Misconduct in UK Universities, our second conference in the series will delve deeper into institutional responses to the movement. Join us to hear about how to tackle intersectional issues, explore more in-depth case studies and understand the difference between legal and institutional disciplinary procedures.

This Westminster Briefing conference, in partnership with GenPol, will bring together a range of stakeholders from across the HE sector to share good practice in honing your reporting and response procedures and protecting students of all cultures.

This is your chance to explore your university’s next steps in embedding cultural change on campus. Join us to network with colleagues who share a passion for this issue and hear from successful institutions with strong campaigns, policies and training that are improving 'prevention and response' to sexual misconduct at university.
