An evening with internationally acclaimed UK filmmaker turned education system changer:
Leslee Udwin

Leslee is a multi-award winning film maker and Human Rights campaigner. After the viewing of her acclaimed award winning documentary India’s Daughter* which sparked a global movement to end violence against women and girls, Leslee will speak about the formation of Think Equal which has its foundations in the documentary.

Think Equal is a free comprehensive social-emotional learning program being introduced and piloted in early childhood services in many countries across the world including here in Victoria. The program has been successfully evaluated by Yale University Center of Emotional Intelligence. Think Equal aims to break the cycles of violence, negative stereotypes and prejudicial judgements through encouraging the development of values, empathy, and respect for the dignity and equality of others starting with children aged 3 to 6 years.
