The Crucial Role of Men in Gender Equality Conference

  • Proskauer Rose LLP 11 Times Square New York, NY, 10036 United States (map)

Join us for an interactive conference on this current topic!

While the participation of men and boys is critical to counter the effects of patriarchy, gender-based-violence, and gender inequality, men’s involvement is still limited. Only by transforming unequal power relations between men and women, and challenging traditional gender stereotypes, social norms and notions of masculinity, can gender equality be achieved. Men play a crucial part in this transformation.

Join us for a discussion with men who are engaged gender advocates to transform social norms, behaviors and gender stereotypes that perpetuate discrimination and inequality. They will share their experience and recommendations on how men and boys can creatively contribute to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and discuss how male leaders and activists can be more effective in moving the agenda forward.
