5 Ideas... why you should attend Tackling Lad Culture

Thursday 14-04-2016 - 11:27

We’re excited to announce the open of registration for our upcoming Tackling Lad Culture event. We’ll be bringing together activists from across the country, holding workshops and sharing resources to help you create a long term strategy to change lad culture on your campus. Here’s the top five reasons why you should attend the event!


1. Learn from Pilot Unions

NUS has been working with 9 Students’ Unions to capture what they have learned from tackling lad culture on their campus, in order to share this across the movement. You can hear about the work that the Pilot Unions have been doing, what they’ve learnt from the process and get advice on things to consider with your work

2. Network with some RAD people

Talk to people working on tackling lad culture on their campus, support each other to improve and overcome areas you are finding challenging. Meet other Staff, Officers and Activists interested in challenging lad culture, share ideas and coordinate action together. This day will provide a space for us to come together and reflect on the activities that are making a real impact and identify how to create a long term strategy on changing culture. 

3. Join the conversation 

Have your input on what policy and guidance students unions' should have in place as standard to tackle sexual harassment and assault on campus.

4. Hear from external organisations

We’ll have a range of external organisations that have been in working in partnership with Students’ Unions and Institutions. Find out about the work they have done and how they can collaborate with you. 

5. Find out about the resources and workshops

Be the first to find out about the resources produced by the Pilot Unions and how you can use them to support the work you’re doing. You’ll also get the opportunity to attend some amazing workshops including: Developing your local strategy, Identifying training needs, Creating Care Pathways and Impactful Awareness Raising.
