#WMAM2016 Panel SESSIONS

MEN & MASCULINITY ON & OFF THE FIELD.

An exploration of how the ideas and ideals of manhood and masculinity impact men in the world of sports culture and everyday life.

MILITARY CULTURE AND EVOLVING MASCULINITY

Re-examining the ways in which narrowly constructed versions of masculinity have proven harmful in a military context. Exploring efforts we can use to engage men to create safer and inclusive learning, training and workplace environments for women.

MOVING AHEAD A NATIONAL INQUIRY INTO MISSING AND MURDERED INDIGENOUS WOMEN

Examining the needs of indigenous people and roles for male allies as Canada prepares for a National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.

THE CONVERSATION

“The purpose of these programs is to give boys the chance to rethink maleness, and to change the way men treat women and each other.”

– The Atlantic

“So this is yet another call to men to stand up and take responsibility for their thoughts, their words, their deeds and as Deion [Sanders] says to give help or to get help, because our silence is deafening and deadly.”

– James Brown, CBS Sports Anchor

“Giving young men the opportunity to talk about what they enjoy and what they don’t also opens the door to considering the desires of others, and it’s a short leap from talking about pleasure to talking about consent.”

– The Walrus
