TEDxIsfeld - Bill Pozzobon: Breaking the Boys Code of Masculinity

From TEDxIsfeld in April 2011, Bill Pozzobon is an actor, director, and inspirational speaker - and he is also Director of the SafeTeen Boys Program. In this TEDx talk he explicates the "man code," the largely unspoken rules about what a man is and how to be a man in this culture. As the image above makes clear, these "rules" are also known as the "man box."

Bill has worked on gender and violence issues with youth and educators for over a decade. In his role as Director of the SafeTeen Boy's Program, he trains the new SafeTeen Agents for Change and co-leads Educator Trainings locally, nationally and internationally. With humor and skill Bill invites the boys and men he works with to step into their full humanity with dignity and courage.

"I am a strong believer in the power of personal choice and heart centered action. My own personal journey and the undeniable impact on the thousands of young men I have worked with, give me an enduring passion for this work."

Bill is also an actor, director, acting teacher and inspirational public speaker who brings powerful personal narrative and a vision for a better world to his work. Find out more about his work at
