Aug 28, 2023 | Events, Project news

Monday 4. September, 13:00-16:00 CET


Are you a student and keen on learning more about what gender-based violence is in the context of academia? 

UniSAFE is piloting a webinar designed for higher education students who would like to gain basic knowledge of what gender-based violence is in the context in higher education and academia, including its magnitude, and how it can be analysed. The seminar introduces key concept, prevalence and consequences of gender-based violence in academia and introduces and applies a model to analyse ways of addressing gender-based violence.

This training will later be freely available to all as part of the UniSAFE toolkit.

For this pilot webinar, UniSAFE is looking for students without previous knowledge of gender-based violence in higher education, but with an interest in learning. Students are invited to participate and give feedback on the piloting of the webinar – in order to improve it for its final version, for the benefit of future learners as part of part of reducing and countering gender-based violence in higher education and research performing organisations.

UniSAFE is an EU Horizon 2020-funded research and action project on gender-based violence in universities and research performing institutions. UniSAFE produces knowledge, recommendations and tools to address gender-based violence in universities and research performing organisations. Violence, violations and abuse may be physical, sexual, economic/financial, psychological – online or offline – and can include gender or sexual harassment.

Seats are limited and participants will be registered on a first come first serve basis.

Registrations are open until the 1 of September, 2023.
