How to get involved with #NeverOK
The #NeverOK campaign will deliver training, resources and marketing materials focused on empowering people to speak out against sexual harassment: helping promote a culture of respect and safety for all staff and students on campus.
To launch the campaign, SU bar staff and members of the University’s Security team have received trained through the Good Night Out campaign, enabling staff to respond confidently to reports of sexual harassment or assault.
Inspired by this, Fresher’s Week Event Managers; Alicia Lobo, Eve Alcock, and Connor Gent have developed and delivered their own ground-breaking training for the 450 members of the Fresher’s crew; ‘Fresher’s Night Out’. This training equips the crew, who look after new students during their first week at University, to identify harassment and handle disclosures confidently Bath is one of the only Universities in the country to offer this kind of wide ranging training to its students.
The #NeverOK campaign has launched for Freshers' Week and you will be seeing posters and plasmas around campus encouraging you to speak out against sexual harassment.
