Through discussion, the panellists will examine the work that is underway to reform academic institutions, with a focus on reporting mechanisms, cultural change, and the importance of creating the right conditions to report. The event will be expressly concerned with intersectional identities.

It connects with a HEFCE-funded project that LSE has underway, in response to the Universities UK Taskforce’s recommendations on tackling violence against women, harassment and hate crime affecting university students.

Jennifer Cirone manages community based services for Solace Women’s Aid in Camden for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.

Winnie Li (@winniemli) is a PhD researcher in Media and Communications at the LSE and author of the novel Dark Chapter.

Tiffany Page (@t_haismanpage) is co-founder of The 1752 Group.

Alison Phipps (@alisonphipps) is Professor of Gender Studies, University of Sussex.

Fiona Waye (@FionaCWaye) is Senior Policy Lead in Inclusion, Equality and Diversity at Universities UK.

Marsha Henry (@mghacademic) is Associate Professor in the Department of Gender Studies and Deputy Director of the Centre for Women, Peace and Security.

The EDI Office (@EDI_LSE) serves as a vital resource and leader in promoting and furthering LSE’s commitment to equity and diversity for all members of its community. 

LSE’s Department of Gender Studies (@LSEGenderTweet) is the largest gender studies centre in Europe. With a global perspective, LSE Gender’s research and teaching intersects with other categories of analysis such as race, ethnicity, class and sexuality; because gender relations work in all spheres of life, interdisciplinarity is key to LSE Gender’s approach.
