End violence against women
In line with the University's strategic commitment to nurture personal development and wellbeing for students and staff, the campaign to end violence against women is building on and coordinating existing activities, support, information and resources.
Take a Stand: what all men can do to prevent violence
On 28 November, we held a workshop with Professor Bob Pease titled 'Take a stand: what all men can do to prevent violence'. The workshop explored what working with men in violence prevention means and why non-violent men should be involved.
Through this type of experiential workshop, Bob Pease seeks to change the attitudes and behaviours that lead to and perpetuate men's violence against women, by engaging boys and men to facilitate social change.
