The aim of the conference was to help attendees from across all sectors to better understand how we all can be ‘active bystanders’ to help deal with situations where women and girls are being subject to abuse of any kind.
The conference featured global and local experts and practitioners in the work of the Bystander Approach and Training. They shared best practice and explained how everyone has a role to play in dealing with this society-wide issue.
The conference was the conclusion of two days of sector specific events, where speakers Dr Jackson Katz, Prof Louise Crowley and Graham Goulden introduced the Bystander practice to key representatives in both the sports and education arenas.
