Registrations are now open for the Scottish Funding Council’s (SFC) annual national gender conference.

Date: Thursday 25 October

Venue: Renfield Training and Conference Centre, Glasgow

Cost: Free

In 2016, SFC published our Gender Action Plan. In it we committed to hold an annual conference to bring together representatives from the sector to reflect on progress and share plans for improvement. This event is targeted at practitioners, researchers, academics, senior managers, policy-makers working in or with Scotland’s colleges and universities, and students, as well as relevant organisations with an interest in this area.

This year’s theme is ‘Intersectional Gender Equalities in Colleges and Universities’. Workshop topics include Enhancing Student Engagement in your Gender Action Plan, Preventing and Responding to Gender Based Violence, and Addressing the Gender Pay Gap in Scotland’s colleges and universities – see link below for more info.
