Event description

In the celebration of Women’s History Month, we bring you face-to-face with the Provost and his office who would share UCL’s journey and progress on putting a full-stop to problematic behavior leading to bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct among students and staff.

The audience would be presented with a short summary of UCL’s work in last few years on improving its policy and procedures on sexual misconduct, bullying and harassment under the name of “Full-Stop Campaign”.

Based on the summary, the Provost would discuss key points with the Women’s Officer. Once the Provost has shared his experiences/thoughts on the themes raised, the floor would then open to the audience to ask any further questions to the Provost, the Equality Diversity and Inclusion team at his Office, and the Women’s Officer.
