Here at Union of UEA Students’ we have been working hard to create an environment where students feel safe and free from sexual harassment.
We launched the Good Night Out project on Friday 9th January 2015, at The Returners event. This has involved training over 200 of our bar staff, security and managers in ensuring that students have a safe night free from sexual harassment.
Through improving our reporting procedure, we want student to feel that they can report incidents of sexual harassment and trust that we will take it seriously.
We are launching the Never OK campaign on Monday 12th January 2015, which will involve a strong visual campaign around challenging behaviours around the perceived norm of sexual harassment. Student are invited to share their own stories, and complete our short survey, to allow us to gain feedback for the next step of the campaign.
Later in the term, we will be launching consent workshops for sports and society committee members. This project is an ongoing initiative, working in partnership with UEA Dean of Students, and will remain a priority for the Union throughout the year.
If you have any questions about the campaign, please contact Holly Staynor (Welfare, Community & Diversity Officer) at firstname.lastname@example.org
