Man Up Campaign Mission

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.

Panelists and Topics

John Patroulis, Worldwide Chief Creative Officer at Grey Advertising Global, will discuss the ad campaign “We Believe: The Best Men Can Be,” which his firm designed for the Gillette brand, owned by Plan partner Procter & Gamble.

Fred Sullivan, co-founder of “The Man Up Campaign,” will speak about his experience engaging youth in a global movement to end gender-based violence and advance gender equality.

Craig Geddes, Senior Technical Advisor for Education and Child Protection at Plan International USA, will share how Plan programs help boys and men examine and change sexist behaviors in their families and communities to support girls and champion their rights.

GREAT LAKES REGION OF AFRICA LEADS THE WAY WITH UNSCR 1325 SURVEY AND REPORT ON THE PARTICIPATION OF WOMEN EQUALLY IN PEACE AND SECURITY.

Man Up Campaign and Foutain ISOKO are conducting on a voluntary basis a survey of 1325 localization and implementation in 3 countries Burundi, DRC and Rwanda. Local NGOs are volunteering recourses for the first pass of these surveys. The report intended to be present and then scaled toward the 20th anniversary of UNSCR 1325 in October 2020.

Background:

UNSCR 1325

The Security Council adopted the resolution (S/RES/1325) on women and peace and security on 31 October 2000. The resolution reaffirms the important role of women in the prevention and resolution of conflicts, peace negotiations, peace-building, peacekeeping, humanitarian response and in post-conflict reconstruction and stresses the importance of their equal participation and full involvement in all efforts for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security. Resolution 1325 urges all actors to increase the participation of women and incorporate gender perspectives in all United Nations peace and security efforts. It also calls on all parties to the conflict to take special measures to protect women and girls from gender-based violence, particularly rape and other forms of sexual abuse, in situations of armed conflict. The resolution provides a number of important operational mandates, with implications for the Member States and the entities of the United Nations system.
