As part of this campaign we want to ensure that students and staff understand what sexual harassment is, the impact it has on our community, and what they can do stop it.

We’re therefore offering two free training sessions, one of which is open to all students, and another which is aimed at students in positions of leadership including society and sports club committee members, peer support leaders, and elected reps. To attend either of these sessions or to arrange bespoke training for your group, please contact Sarah Moffat at sarah.moffat@eusa.ed.ac.uk.

Being an Active Bystander: How to Intervene in Situations of Sexual Harassment

This workshop is designed to equip all students with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to be an active bystander. The workshop will also cover tips on identifying sexual harassment, common myths, and information on how to support someone who has experienced sexual harassment.

Our next sessions are running:

Monday 27 March 2017, 2pm

Monday 3 April 2017, 2pm

Tuesday 4 April 2017, 7pm

Sign-up via Eventbrite here, and find out more on our Facebook event here.

Take the Lead: Challenging Sexual Harassment and Violence in Your Community

This workshop is targeted at students who hold positions of leadership within the student community, including but not limited to Sports Club and Society Committee Members, Elected Reps within the Students’ Association and Sports Union, and Peer Support Leaders. It will equip you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to promote a culture within your community that challenges perpetrators of sexual harassment and violence, and supports survivors.
