Dear Gender Equality Forum Member,
We are delighted to invite you to the second Gender Equality Forum event on 7 March 2015, 10:30 - 2pm at Barnsley Town Hall (leaflet attached). The event will focus on gender based violence and harassment, and what we as a Forum can do to make a difference.
We are proud to have Jill Saward as our keynote speaker. Jill is an author, campaigner and a survivor of of the 1986 Ealing Vicarage Rape, a crime that scandalised the UK and led to changes in the law.
Workshop themes will include:
- Forced marriage and FGM
- Sexual harassment
- Abuse and exploitation
We recognise that these are very sensitive themes, and we will do all we can to provide a safe environment where issues can be openly discussed with a focus on ways to make a positive difference. These will be fed back to the Police and Crime Commissioners Office, the multi agency safeguarding team and other relevant services.
Booking is essential, if you would like to attend please email info@360engagement, or use the other contact information given in the flyer. Please let us know if you have any access, dietary or language needs.
