Working Together – UK Policing #HeForShe Event

Working Together – UK Policing #HeForShe Event

Police forces across the UK came together in South Wales on Wednesday 1 May 2024 for the national #HeForShe event. Thames Valley Police, HeForShe was represented by PC Liam Busby and Simon Hockley.

Focused on ‘Working Together’, the event explored how policing can work together towards gender equality. Speakers highlighted progress and shared good practice of how #HeForShe is embedded within forces and its impact is being spread wider.

The event was held at South Wales Police HQ in Bridgend, in their new, purpose-built, Police Learning Centre. Chief Constable Jeremy Vaughan is the UK Policing Lead for #HeForShe, he said “It has been great to come together as a network and look at how we can further the #HeForShe movement and how we can work together towards gender equality.”

“Now, more than ever, it is important that we engage men in our organisations about the importance of gender equality activity and tackle the sexism and misogyny that we know exists.”

#HeForShe is the United Nation’s movement for gender equality. Men around the world have made a commitment to be a bold, visible and united force for gender equality.

UK policing reports on its progress in an annual report. Their fifth annual report was launched in December 2023.

Thames Valley Police has made its own commitment to #HeForShe and looks to: 

  • Address the gender imbalances in middle management teams.
  • Address and remove the sexism and misogyny, where it exists, in police culture.
