This BUCS Girl Can Week 2016/17 date announced as 7-13 November! 09/06/2016
Following the success of the inaugural This BUCS Girl Can Weeks in April and December 2015, BUCS are pleased to announce that This BUCS Girl Can Week 2016/17 will be running 7 - 13 November.
Save the date!
Universities are encouraged to organise a range of activity throughout the week of action for female students to take part in. Whether that be women-only sessions, workshops discussing women and gender equality in sport or attempting to break a participation record as a university community, the Week is all about encouraging and empowering women to be active in sport and physical activity during their time at university and beyond.
How can you get involved?
1. Share the date with your students, activators and new club committees
2. Plan your activity and empower your students
3. Engage your students, reinforcing how being active is great for physical and mental health
4. Shout about what you are doing and share your journey with BUCS
You can find a great range of resources and case studies on the Female Participation pages of BUCS' new Support & Guidance hub as well. Here you can find content from previous weeks of action, case studies from universities across the UK and a range of research and resources around engaging more women at university in sport and physical activity.
BUCS are always looking for more case studies to share as best practice and will be profiling activity from this year in the lead up to 7 November, so please do share any photos, stories or the like via #ThisBUCSGirlCan and with the BUCS office.
