You may have noticed signs of an increase in harmful behaviour in schools. As one of our partner schools in the East Midlands told us, "bigotry, misogyny and racism in general have become more prevalent over the last few years”. Several schools we work with have been facing increased misogyny, homophobia, racism or anti-trans views among students, some of which is spread by online influencers. Many East Midlands school leaders have done outstanding work on this front which we think it's worth sharing and discussing. 

You will hear from:

  • Mandi Collins, Principal of Thomas Estley College in Leicester
  • Paul Rhodes, Assistant Principal at Uppingham Community College
  • Adam Marriott, PSHE and RE Trust lead at Brooke Weston Trust
  • An academic researcher, presenting on the root causes of misogyny and harmful behaviour
  • Nicole Rodden, co-founder of Life Lessons share a case study of best practice for tackling harmful behaviour

The event will also involve a chance to share best practice, Q&A’s and networking opportunities.
