Save the date – NWRWC seminar is on Saturday 30th July 2022
The North West Region Women’s Committee has agreed a new date for its summer seminar to avoid clashes with events elsewhere.
The new date is Saturday 30th July 2022 and the theme is Women Leading the Way for Change, with a focus on what women can do to address the appalling and growing violence against women and girls.
Speakers are currently being contacted to cover topics such as community action in Liverpool in the wake of the murder of Ava White and other attacks and attempted attacks on women and girls in the city; an interactive workshop on how to tackle sexual harassment and recruit more women health and safety officers/reps; Early Years education on violence against girls; how to organise a successful campaign in your community and ways UNISON’s There For You can assist women subjected to violence and abuse
The event will be held in-person at Arena Point (UNISON Regional Centre in Manchester) but there will also be a facility for people to attend remotely. Arrival for those attending in person will be 9.30am so the event can start promptly at 10am. It will run until approximately 3.30pm with a hot lunch to facilitate time to network
The overall winner and two runners-up in the Committee’s Women in UNISON Recognition Awards 2022 will be announced and presented with their prizes. These are women nominated by grass-roots members and activists and voted on by the Committee, so please do your best to attend the event to show them your support.
The Committee wants to ensure any eligible UNISON member who would like to attend the seminar can do so. Child care can be provided for those who would otherwise have to miss out on attending. Please let me know asap if you need child care. Michelle.firstname.lastname@example.org
