Man Enough? Workshop Series
Man Enough?™ will explore different ways to challenge ourselves, stand up, speak out, and influence others to create meaningful change in our communities.
Discussion-based group aimed to engage men as allies in preventing violence against women. We’ll discuss expectations of masculinity and its impacts on our social relationships. Throughout the program we’ll navigate the diverse roles men can play in joining the work to help create communities free of sexual violence.
In this program, men will have the opportunity to explore what it means to be a “man”. Participants are encouraged to examine attitudes and beliefs that contribute to gender inequality and embrace the power they have to influence a culture of change.
