National MIEY Conference 2018 Launch
We are incredibly excited to announce the full details of the 3rd National Men in Early Years Conference, on Tuesday 10th July 2018, City Hall, Bristol.
This has been the result of months of hard work behind the scenes with the scope of not only raising awareness of gender issues in the Early Years, but actively seeking to put these ideas into action in our everyday practice with children.
We are pleased to put together a day featuring some of most prominent speakers on gender in the Early Years, and invite you to join us in addressing the key questions:
How can we effectively tackle the gender imbalance in the workforce, at just 2% male?
What do we need to do remove these restrictive stereotypes we place upon children?
Why does society not give the profession the status it deserves?
What difference can we make about this in the profession and in wider society?
With this, we are proud to announce Professor of Science and Society and Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College London, Lord Robert Winston as one of our keynote speakers.
He will be joined by author of Cleverlands: The Secrets Behind the Success of the World’s Education Superpowers, Lucy Crehan, and star of the BBC2 documentary 'No More Boys and Girls: Can Our Kids Go Gender Free'’ Graham Andre.
There will be a wealth of knowledge and experience to be shared by our Workshop and Stall Leads and we have invited local Bristol organizations to celebrate the work being carried out across the city to tackle gender inequality.
We are fortunate enough to offer these tickets heavily subsidised. As a Community Interest Company, anything we make will go straight back into the network. Tickets are just £40 and £20 for Standard and Students respectively (plus booking fees). Spaces are limited!
