This workshop session took place at the ITET 2024 Annual PGCE Conference Inclusion & Inspiration - Education for Social Justice. 12 January 2024. University of Manchester. Katharine highlighted that when it comes to gender equality, many young men have a reflex reaction: reluctance to discuss the topic for fear of saying the wrong thing. But, in the light of Everyone’s Invited and recent KCSIE guidance, it’s more important than ever to actively engage them with gender equality issues. She discussed how we construct a narrative that gets young men on board, giving them the necessary language and resilience to engage in these important and challenging conversations? Her interactive workshop session covered the project she led at Bolton School Boys’ Division: using women in history as a way in to engage young men in discussions around gender equality. She examined data gathered from over 800 students, what they learnt, and how they are moving forward. The take away was practical resources to use in the classroom and lots of ideas.
