Intersectional training guidance
In 2019, with Vanita Sundaram, Erin Shannon, and Tiffany Page, I developed a guide for disclosure and bystander intervention training facilitators, to make their training more intersectional. This includes an explanation of intersectionality and various ideas for how it can be applied, including suggested activities. It can be downloaded here.
Disclosure training models and resources
Between 2016 and 2018 I co-led (with Dr Pam Alldred at Brunel) the Universities Supporting Victims of Sexual Violence project, a major pan-European intervention involving 21 institutions in six different countries. The project developed models of disclosure or ‘first response’ training for university staff, and piloted and evaluated each of them. We trained 1248 staff in total. The training models and resources are all available free on our website for anyone to download and use, together with reports on the various training programmes and the overall project report.
In 2014, together with Elsie Whittington and funded by an ESRC Impact Acceleration Grant, I developed a workshop targeted at university managers, staff and students, on sexual harassment and violence in the HE sector. The session is based around a Prezi which can be downloaded and adapted, and there is also an information sheet for participants and timeline/structure for facilitators. The workshop takes at least 90 minutes but could easily be longer with more time for interaction and discussion. The workshop was delivered at Bath, De Montfort, Roehampton, Sussex, Leicester, Hull, York, Northumbria and UCL.
