Student Sex Work Policy and Toolkit Launch

15th Dec 2-3pm

Join this Culture Shift webinar with University of Leicester to launch their new Student Sex Worker Policy and Toolkit


About this Event

We're absolutely delighted to host this event launching University of Leicester's Student Sex Worker Policy and Toolkit.

The Student Support Services and EDI teams at University of Leicester have been working together on this over the past year, and at this event will be sharing what they've learnt so far from this sector-leading work.

The work has been guided by Professor Teela Sanders who has been facilitating a national co-ordination group since early 2020, with over 40 stakeholders of researchers, practitioners and sex work organisations. There are now several regional groups raising the profile within Universities, and the activities at the University of Leicester are being used as best practice and innovative change.

The policy and toolkit at Leicester will be used to showcase how these sensitive issues can be tackled with student wellbeing and inclusivity at the heart of policy and practice development.

The event will include a short presentation where you'll hear from the University's team as well as a student sex worker and other experts, and then a Q&A session which is open to the audience.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Henrietta O’Connor, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Head of College of Social Science, Arts and Humanities

  • Harriet Smailes – Wellbeing Case Manager, University of Leicester

  • Jessica Rose - Support for Student Sex Workers
