The Mulberry Schools Trust Warmly Invites You To

PoE logo

A conference for schools exploring gender equality

The conference is designed in collaboration with students from the Mulberry Schools Trust. Our conference brings young people together from across the country for the day to imagine what a gender equal society might look like. As schools, we recognise that young people have the power to change the world. Yet in the world beyond school, not everyone is given an equal chance to fulfil their potential. Campaigns like #MeToo, and ‘He for She’ shine a light on continuing inequalities for women, but men too are also effected. They are often denied the opportunity to show vulnerability – and suicide rates amongst men are also a concern.

The aims of the conference are:

  1. To raise awareness of gender equality among young people.
  2. To explore how the arts can deconstruct and find creative solutions to inequality.
  3. To bring together young people and diverse role models to engage with and learn from each other.
  4. To enable young people to become leaders and advocates, in delivering this event and creating a more equal world.

Conference Contributors Include:

Jude Kelly, Former Artistic Director of the South Bank Centre, Edwina Dunn, Founder of the Female Lead, Delia Barker, Programmes Director, Round House, Shobana Jeyasingh, Choreographer & Founder of Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company, David Lan, Former Artistic Director at the Young Vic, Baroness Shami Chakrabati, Jade Anouka, Actor, Dave Neita, Lawyer & Poet, Carrie Cracknell, Theatre Director, and many other leading artists.

The conference is being live streamed in two parts:

Part 1
10:30 – 12:00
including LIVE panel discussion exploring gender inequality in dance at 10:45

Part 2
14:00 – 17:00

Dr Vanessa Ogden, CEO of the Mulberry Schools Trust and the Mulberry Schools Foundation said: “At this conference, we are bringing together girls and boys, women and men to consider issues of gender equality. A prosperous and harmonious society is a society where inequality and injustice have no place. The conference provides a platform for young people to have their voices heard. Schools are the  crucibles of civilisation and it is our responsibility to ensure that pupils leave us equipped to create a fairer future for all”.

Pepper the robotMulberry UTC and Pepper joined the NHS England Young People's Takeover Challenge Event at Guy's Hospital on Saturday. Pepper is an industrial robot, already used as a hospital receptionist in Belgian hospitals, where it greets patients, shows them around and helps with translation.  UTC students will work with Pepper and other developments in health technology, so they are well prepared for their future careers.  Pepper's manufacturers claim it is an 'emotional' robot which helps people feel relaxed by responding to them in a friendly and empathetic  way. The people who met Pepper on Saturday certainly seemed to agree!

Mulberry UTC’s creative stage lighting workshop has been postponed until January. It will be open to all Year 9 and Year 11 students. Details will be published on this website soon.

All Y11 students, or Y12 students on 1-year courses, are warmly invited to Mulberry UTC’s Year 12 Information Evening on Thursday 2 October from 4.30-7pm.
