One month to go until the National Gender in Early Years Conference on Tuesday 10th July 2018 at City Hall, Bristol!
Everyone from teachers, students, members of the public, both women and men who have an interest in challenging both gender imbalance and stereotypes are being invited to take part.
The conference aims to raise awareness of gender issues in early years’ education but also find ways to overcome them and change the way we look at education for our young children. The hope is to find new solutions to help young children challenge gender stereotypes so that they may grow up to feel more able to make their own choices about their own careers and gender roles.
The event will feature several keynote speakers to help inspire the debate. These include Graham Andre, star of BAFTA nominated BBC2 documentary “No More Boys and Girls”, and Lord Robert Winston, Professor of Science and Society at Imperial College London. There will also be a series of workshops on the day to discuss these issues which will be held by other experts and authors on the subject.
The event will also feature a range of other local Bristol organisations to showcase some of the work already being carried out across the city to tackle gender inequality. These will include stalls from Bristol Zero Tolerance, The Bristol Standard and TIGER Bristol (Teaching Individuals Gender Equality and Respect).
Tickets cost £40 per delegate and £20 for students. A ticket allows you to access both the keynote speakers and to choose a workshop to attend (plus lunch!). This conference has been organized in partnership with Bristol Learning City.
