Join us for a free one-day workshop to explore good practice in promoting effective anti-harassment and anti-bullying behaviours within our academic STEM community. This event is aimed at all those working within university STEM departments who wish to encourage discussions about developing an ethos of positive behaviour and mutual respect. 

Professor Carole Mundell, head of department of physics at the University of Bath, will be leading our day and we will hear from Dr Emma Chapman of the 1752 Group, Dr Sheila Kanani from the Royal Astronomical Society and Professor Val Gibson, who has spearheaded work within the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge to promote their values and a positive culture of respect.

Workshops led by Professor Emyr McDonald, Department of physics, University of Cardiff,                Robina Ruby Begum, Manchester University Equality & Diversity Office and Dr Emma Chapman will look at practical actions physics departments and universities are taking to develop wider departmental engagement on addressing harassment and bullying.

We want the outcomes of our day to include concrete steps the Institute of Physics, other professional bodies and the STEM community can take to deliver real change in this area.
