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.
Please join us for a night of 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 Plan’s Champions of Change project in El Salvador, which reshapes boys’ and girls’ views on gender roles, with the goal of reducing violence across communities.
