Get Involved and Create Workplaces of Equality, Inclusion, and Opportunity

If we can create such workplaces organizations that can do this have been shown to flourish and we will all do better.

As we were planning our annual 16 days activities we actively collaborate locally with the New York City Commission on Gender Equality for the last 3 years. They always prepare a media plan and tool kit and calendar that informs our action they encourage local events and inspire our international events. We also center on international campaign coordinated by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership and used by activists around the world as an organizing strategy to call for the elimination of all forms of gender-based violence. The core 16 Days campaign takes place every year between November 25 and December 10 and is run by more than 6,000 organizations in 187 countries.

As a way to continue the 16 Days year-round, we can focus on ratification and implementation of the new ILO Convention 190 and Recommendation 206 to end GBV in the world of work.

2020 Africa Regional Youth Leader Summit For Gender Equality

Man Up Campaign, on the 10th Anniversary of its founding Summit, will be hosted by the Government of Uganda and organized by Education Forum Africa in partnership with Youth Alive Uganda. Youth Alive Uganda Program Director James Byarugaba is one of over 100 Man Up Campaign delegates from 24 countries to the first Summit. Since that first Summit in 2010, James has applied the gender lens to all Youth Alive Uganda Programs impacting around 75,000 youth per year. As James has modeled in Uganda the next wave will begin their journey on the Summit Theme: Taking the lead in promoting gender equality for sustainable development. The youth leaders were able to gain inspiration, insight, and connections to resources allowing them to help facilitate projects of their design in their community to promote gender equality.

The Changing Role of Masculinity: Panel by Plan International NY

What Does It Mean To Be A Man In Today's World?

Whether it’s a “boys will be boys” attitude, the boys club in the workplace, or millions of women saying #MeToo and #TimesUp, what it means to “be a man” is being examined more than ever before.

The NYC Leadership Council at Plan International USA is pleased to present a powerful program to further the dialogue. Moderator Cheryl Benton Plan International Chair NY facilitated a stimulating conversation, including an examination of how media and advertisers can play a powerful role in changing the culture of masculinity. We will also discuss how men can take actions large and small to create meaningful change for themselves, their loved ones, and their peers, and set the right example for the next generation of men. The event will support the Plan’s Champions of Change project in El Salvador, which reshapes boys’ and girls’ views on gender roles, to achieve the outcome of reducing violence across communities.
