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.

"Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty,
promoting sustainable development, and building good governance"
Kofi Annan – former United Nations Secretary-General.

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.
