Healthy Masculinity Training Institute January 2016

Register for the January 2016 Healthy Masculinity Training Institute in Washington, DC. 

Why should you care about healthy masculinity? Because men who choose it choose to be strong without being violent. It’s a life-changer that benefits women and men. 

Through three days of discussions about theory, interactive group exercises, role-playing, and multi-media presentations, the training institute presents participants with a framework to positively construct masculinity and to motivate men’s engagement in challenging the attitudes and behaviors that support violence against girls and women. This training is ideal for staff from universities, middle and high schools, law enforcement agencies, the US armed forces, statewide and local coalitions, service agencies, and government agencies.

The institute will provide you with the skills to promote healthy masculinity in your life, your organization, and your community and for you to organize a Healthy Masculinity Town Hall or Campus Conversation.
