Who this event is for

The CEO of Oxfordshire Sexual Abuse & Rape Crisis Centre (OSARCC), Lisa Ward joins Tracey Rosenfeld-Schueler and Rev Kate Harford for an interfaith discussion about the role of faith in protecting women and girls from violence, and in perpetuating violence. Lisa has more than eight years’ experience of supporting survivors of sexual violence, and working systematically to bring about organisational change across Oxfordshire. Her key area of research and practice is in ensuring trauma informed support pathways for survivors. She is an alumna of Oxford Brookes. Maryyum is an academic, analyst and advocate. Besides lecturing at University of Birmingham, where she has taught Masters in Islam and feminism, Maryyum works to empower women of faith in leadership, and is a content curator whose YouTube channel The SHIFT with Maryyum tackles issues of misogyny, toxic masculinity and spiritual abuse. For more: Tracey is one of the Jewish Chaplains at Oxford Brookes, part of the Multifaith Chaplaincy team, and a trustee of OSARCC. Kate is University Chaplain and Pastoral Care Lead at Oxford Brookes University. She has experience of working with people who find themselves homeless, and those living with severe and enduring mental illness, in which capacities she has worked with several women survivors of violence.
