Gender Equality Forum
Our Gender Forum welcomes all colleagues and students who have an interest in promoting gender equality at Leeds Beckett.
Most recently we have worked with outside agencies to raise awareness of violence against women in the Leeds area and over the coming year will be looking at trans issues and men’s health.
