    Changing the Culture

    Tackling sexual violence, bullying and harassment, hate crime and hate incidents by shifting attitudes, values and behaviours, and creating more inclusive and tolerant communities.

    The Changing the Culture Initiative is a university-wide programme which has been set up to tackle violence, harassment and hate.

    That includes:

    • Hate incidents and hate crime – e.g. racism, xenophobia, misogyny, faith-based hate, bigotry, discrimination, LGBT hate
    • Gender-based violence – e.g. sexual violence, domestic abuse, sexism
    • Harassment – e.g. racial harassment, sexual harassment, online harassment.
