This event will take place at IOE - Bedford Way (20) - 901, IOE - Bedford Way, 20

Student’s Union UCL does not tolerate sexual misconduct, bullying and harassment in any form. This is why the Union and UCL have joined forces to run the Active Bystander Programme as part of the Full Stop campaign and continue to tackle unacceptable behaviours at UCL and beyond.

Since 2012 the Union has had a Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment policy, which means we do not tolerate sexual misconduct in any of our spaces, or at any of our events. Recently we have taken a further step to expand what we do not tolerate in our spaces (sexual misconduct, harassment and bullying), as we commit to changing the culture that upholds such behaviour. We do this through a number of ways:

We offer active bystander sessions to all incoming students in signatory departments, giving students the skills they need to challenge harassment when they witness it
We offer training to all front line staff, including student staff and student-facing careers staff
We deliver Active Bystander training to presidents and treasurers of union clubs and societies as part of compulsory clubs and societies training
We work closely with UCL departments giving guidance on how to create a zero tolerance environment
To ensure security staff who work at the union are informed of this policy and have the power to remove perpetrators from our spaces
