How to Tackle Sexism & Sexual Harassment in Schools Webinar

5 June 2024 4:00pm – 5:30pm

The session is aimed specifically for schools staff and will look into raising awareness of the whole school culture on addressing sexism.

Research carried out in 2017 highlighted the widespread extent of sexism in sexism in schools. Over a third (37%) of girls at mixed-sex schools said that they had been sexually harassed while at school with over a third (34%) of primary school staff saying they witnessed gender stereotyping in their schools on at least a weekly basis. Unfortunately, little has changed since then.

The session will cover:

  • Evidence on the scale and nature of sexism in schools
  • How to tackle sexual harassment, sexist language and gender stereotyping in your role as support staff
  • Why a whole-school approach is most effective for tackling sexism
  • Ofsted and legal requirements to tackle sexism and sexual harassment

The session will be delivered by UK Feminista, an organisation dedicated to supporting people and organisations to take action and create lasting change in achieving equality between men and women.
