Healthy Masculinity Summit

Check it out. This is something my employer should be supporting, since we are also about stopping violence as well as treating it.

Healthy Masculinity Summit

The Healthy Masculinity Summit is part of the Healthy Masculinity Action Project (HMAP), the most ambitious undertaking ever to spread the message of healthy, non-violent masculinity across the country. HMAP, a two-year action project, will develop new male leadership that role models strength without violence. Men who are strong and assertive, as well as caring and connected, benefit our loved ones, schools, workplaces, nation, and the world.

HMAP kicks off with the summit in Washington, DC, October 17-19, 2012. We will gather the best of the best – male and female leaders, from business to education, from policy to sports, as well as organizations working to prevent violence against women and girls and other forms of violence.

Join us for this national dialogue about healthy masculinity. Become part of the conversation.

Learn more about the conversations that will take place at the 2012 Healthy Masculinity Summit and download the Healthy Masculinity Action Project brochure. See the HMAP Allies on the About page.
