A ThinkIn is an open editorial conference, where we take your expertise and experience and use it to shape our journalism. The only rule is no questions – we want to hear what you think.

A lot of conversations about universities now focus on how safe a space they are - but what are the priorities that we should be focussing on. We all want universities that are free from violence, harassment and bullying, but how do we get there - and is that enough?

Chair: Chris Cook, Editor and Partner, Tortoise and former Policy Editor, Newsnight

What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?
A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a 'leader conference' in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It's where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It's where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.
Drinks from 6.00pm, starts promptly at 6.30pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can 'SlinkIn'!

We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren't there in person.
Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
