HREA Webinar on May 19: Engaging Men and Boys in Gender Equality Programs

HREA is hosting a free one-hour online webinar next Tuesday, May 19, at 14:30 UTC. The event will focus on engaging men and boys in programs focused on gender equality:

Most programs and projects on gender equality focus on women. However, it is equally important to address power dynamics between different genders and consider how they affect progress towards gender equality. Because of this, practitioners increasingly recognise that engaging men and boys in programming is essential to advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment. Programming should also identify male-based gender issues that may make men and boys particularly vulnerable. In this one-hour professional development webinar, Gary Barker will draw upon concrete experiences and examples from Promundo’s work to provide a critical look at current efforts to engage men and boys.

You can register here and they will then send the details of how to join the webinar!

After the webinar, please do post here to discuss any new insights and reactions!
