After the success of our Summer 2020 workshops, we’re back this Autumn-Winter with more online workshops on digital self care, self defence and safety,
Our Covid-19 report showed that almost half of women and non-binary people reported experiencing online abuse since the beginning of COVID-19 and a third of those who had experienced online abuse prior to the pandemic reported it being worse during COVID-19.
Alongside campaigning for both government and tech to implement systematic change, at Glitch, we are committed to continue equipping women and non-binary people, as digital citizens, to flourish online safely. It’s more important than ever to make sure those disproportionately impacted by online abuse are aware of how to stay safe and how to prioritise their own wellbeing online.
Whether you’re interested in having a public facing role, you’re working to support others in your community or you simply just want to feel safer to be you on social media, you’ll come away from our workshops with practical tools and increased control over your online presence, resulting in a happier, healthier relationship with the digital space.
Join us at our free one hour online workshops this Autumn and Winter!
