RNCM launches zero-tolerance campaign regarding sexual harassment11:41, 12th March 2019
The RNCM and RNCM Students’ Union have launched a new campaign promoting a zero-tolerance culture regarding sexual harassment.
Led by the Students’ Union, RNCM Zero is a collaborative initiative designed to ensure that the Royal Northern College of Music sets a strong example to its staff, students and the wider community of Greater Manchester. It aims to educate on the definition of sexual harassment, improve the signposting and procedure for reporting instances of harassment and bullying, and challenge the culture in which sexual harassment exists.
Nina Pryce, RNCM SU education officer, said: ‘The purpose of this campaign echoes the artistic industry’s current push towards a safer, more equal and positive environment. Through uniting the Students’ Union and the College we can work together to challenge unacceptable behaviour and create a zero-tolerance culture in which staff and students feel safe and empowered.’
RNCM Zero is offering people the chance to show their solidarity with a range of free merchandise, social media graphics and the option to sign an external statement.
