About the Event

KIP Education and Vanessa Rogers are collaborating again to offer educators and other professionals an online conference to explore these pervasive issues and discuss effective strategies for prevention and intervention to create learning environments that are safe, respectful and equitable.

With engaging key speakers providing expert insights, good practice examples and interactive discussions, don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the catalyst to make a lasting impact on the lives of young people 

📈 In recent years, there has been a noticeable surge in awareness surrounding sexual harassment and violence against women and girls within educational settings. Numerous young people have bravely shared their personal stories and experiences on platforms like Everyone’s Invited. In parallel, many educators, childcare professionals and parents are questioning the potential links between this harmful peer on peer sexual behaviour (Ofsted report (June 2021), and the rise in popularity of online groups perpetuating ‘toxic masculinity’ in what is often called the ‘Manosphere.’ With charismatic and powerful social media ‘influencers’ disseminating misogynistic content liked and shared by millions, this conference will explore concerns about the effect this is having on the attitudes and behaviours of young boys and men, as well as hearing from speakers that have found effective ways to challenge it without shame or blame.

The June 2021 report from Ofsted unveiled a disconcerting reality, highlighting the widespread occurrence of young people subjected to harmful sexual behaviour by their peers on a daily basis. * This is just an example of why this conference is so vital. 

This event is a chance to equip yourself with the knowledge and skills to engage young people, especially young men and boys, in positive conversations about gender, masculinity and sexual consent to create a more inclusive, equal, and respectful environment in schools and youth settings
