The University and Liverpool Guild of Students are hosting events and activities this week to support national Anti-Bullying Week (14 – 18 November).
The events and activities will aim to raise awareness of what bullying and harassment is and what staff and students at the University can do about it.
Where you draw the line
As part of the week, people are being invited to share their thoughts about what bullying and harassment behaviour is, whether it is during study, at work, on the street or where you live.
If you would like to contribute, please send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. A selection will be published on the Diversity and Equality website at the end of the week.
- Bullying & Harassment Workshop:
This workshop provides an opportunity to discuss and reflect on how bullying and harassment is defined, the type of behaviour that could constitute bullying, and to reflect on your own behaviour.
The events will take place on Monday, 14 November 12-1pm and 1-2pm (Life Sciences Building, Seminar Room 2), Tuesday, 15 November 9:30-10:30am (Leahurst campus), and Friday, 18 November 1-2pm (Rendall Building, Seminar Room 4).

- LGBT+ Society Asexual Info Session:
Raising awareness and acceptance of asexuality is one of the LGBT+ Society’s main targets in this academic year. The society’s representative will discuss the meaning of asexuality, its representations in the media and the issues asexuals face today. There will also be a question and answer session.
The event will take place on Wednesday, 16 November 6-7:30pm at Liverpool Guild of Students. More information is available at: http://www.liverpoolguild.org/events/lgbt-society-asexual-info-session. There is no need to book, just turn up on the day.
