Every year the Women’s campaign hosts bootcamps to equip full time and part time women’s officers with the tools they’ll need to successfully run campaigns and win the arguments on their campuses.
This year is no different and on 3 & 6 March we’re back in London and Manchester running interactive days to build your skills and learn new ones.
The days are a full day training event for full and part-time women's officers in Students' Unions. Combining group work, workshops and time to ask questions and discuss how to make your campaigns more effective and powerful. At bootcamp Women's officers will be able to learn more about the women's campaign projects, you’ll hear from our National Women’s Officer Hareem Ghani and her second place Amelia Horgan on all the work they’re doing this year. You will have the opportunity to meet other women's officers to share ideas and experiences, build skills and learn how to represent and campaign for women on your campuses.
We have various interactive workshops on the day to equip you with the tools and knowledge to support women and campaign on issues pertinent to them. You can take your pick from BDS through to creating intersectional groups. Fighting for liberation on campus and in the wider society can be very tiring and frustrating at times, so much so that sometimes people feel like giving up. At bootcamp women's officers will have an opportunity to share their concerns in a safe space and learn about ways to engage in self-care.
To register for either day you will need to download a registration form here, fill it out and send to firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your place. Please specify on the form which date you want to attend. Please note that if you are under 18 you will have to fill out a consent form to attend a bootcamp, you can find this here for Manchester and here for London. Don’t forget to attach it to your email.
We very much look forward to seeing lots of you at bootcamp!
