London Inception Workshop Presentation: Dr Kalpana Viswanath, Safetipin (Societal Partner) Co-Founder & CEO

We had our first British Academy #DIVAWProject workshop entitled ‘Violence Against Women (VAW) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)’ at Somerset House, King’s College London on 17th November 2017.

We launched our project via the organisation of our first UK workshop as a multidisciplinary forum for those scholars, professionals and activists working on urban studies, safe cities, digital infrastructures, violence against women (VAW) and gender-based violence (GBV) to generate recommendations on how to address VAW by improving women’s knowledge of, and safe access to, urban infrastructure in the Indian city in line with UN Sustainable Development Goals 5, 6 and 11.

This workshop also allowed the project team and societal partners Safetipin and Sakhi Women’s Resource Centre to get advice on how to approach the project from our project Advisory Board and experts.

Dr Kalpana Viswanath, Co-Founder and CEO of #DIVAWProject Societal Partner Safetipin, presented on ‘Safetipin: Using data and technology to build safer public spaces‘.
