I *Heart* Consent Week


In collaboration with the Students’ Union & the University of Northampton our branch are organising a week of events to tackle sexual discrimination.  All events are open to all students and staff, whether or not they are a member of a trade union – in fact as it’s UCU’s National Recruitment Week why not bring along a colleague and encourage them to join?

The programme is:

A panel discussion co-chaired by Nick Cartwright, UCU Branch Secretary & Victor Agboola, President of Northampton Students’ Union.

The panel consists of: Helen Carr, National Head of Equality & Participation for UCU, Shelly Asquith, VP Welfare for the NUS & a representative from the University

Followed by drinks, nibbles & networking
