FORWARD and Refugee Women of Bristol invite you to a conference to mark International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation 2018.

Refugee Women of Bristol in partnership with the Foundation for Women's Health Research and Development (FORWARD) invite you to join us for an informative day of presentations, discussions, workshops and networking at our annual International Zero Tolerance for FGM Conference.

The day aims to bridge the gap between the work of key agencies and individuals, by bringing together the work of community advocates, students, teachers, and other key professionals.

It's an opportunity for cross agency learning, networking and for members of the community to have a broader understanding of the #EndFGM landscape in Bristol.

Lunch will be provided.

Speakers include:

Opening Remarks - Ruth Pickersgill, Councillor (Easton) Bristol City Council

Chairperson -Toks Okeniyi, Head of UK Programmes and Operations, FORWARD UK
