Tomorrow 6th February, at Glasgow Caledonian University, the "Enhancing transcultural participation (ETP) – through preventing FGM Project Launch Event" will be held to mark the International Day of Zero Tolerance to FGM (Femal Genital Mutilation).
The ETP project is developing a strategy to manage relationships between individual people, community organisations, policy makers, researchers and statutory and third sector organisations.This project specifically focuses on FGM and involves KWISA, an African women led community organisation and school children of African descent attending Notre Dame High School in Glasgow.
This launch event will:
- explore KWISA’s FGM holistic community engagement model and how it has developed within the project
- outline how schools and other service providers can learn how to engage and incorporate perspectives of potentially affected communities
- consider the strategic process involved in enhancing transcultural participation across sector
The event is for all those interested in FGM but also for those interested in hearing about approaches to incorporating diverse perspectives when designing and undertaking research and policy.
