Following the popular special lunchtime session at LEPH2018 in Toronto, this year at LEPH2019 a two-day pre-conference consultation will be held on Gender in public health and safety: addressing the needs of women as employees and clients in criminal justice.
The consultation will examine local and international issues to advance progress towards achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals 5 (Gender equality) and 16 (Peace, justice & strong institutions), including how to maximise the role of women in policing and provide gender responsive services. The event is intended to be as interactive as possible and be an exchange of learning from Global North and Global South. The event will be of interest to police, researchers, civil society representatives, service providers, government representatives and people with lived experience.
The consultation will focus on multi-stakeholder collaborations and innovative approaches as well as how challenges may be overcome in implementing new approaches or policy changes which may provide useful lessons learned for other local and international contexts.
