Prevention conference: 11 October 2018

Violence against Women and Girls: Leadership for Prevention

** Now fully booked **

At Zero Tolerance our vision is of a world free of violence against women and we work to achieve this through primary prevention - challenging the social attitudes and structures which permit this violence to occur. On 11 October Zero Tolerance will bring together leaders, professionals and policy-makers across a range of sectors to explore primary prevention at a one day conference.

With presentations, workshops and discussions, this event will be a unique opportunity to meet leaders and change makers, hear from experienced professionals and discuss opportunities for embedding, or further embedding, primary prevention into your work.

Date: Thursday 11 October

Location: Easter Road Stadium, 12 Albion Pl, Edinburgh EH7 5QG
