Rethinking Masculinity: Let's start questioning

Global Chapter
Wed, May 12, 3:00 PM (PDT)

About this event

It is undeniable that many of the challenges we face both at work and in our society at large are rooted in how we define and interpret gender.

In order to have a holistic approach to diversity, equity and inclusion, it is critical that we take a fresh look at and question the current state of masculinity. In this panel you will hear three unique perspectives on the topic of masculinity designed to have you question your assumptions and provide you with new perspectives on the traditional constructs of what it means to be a man. This will be followed by a facilitated conversation looking at how we can embrace healthier and more mindful versions of masculinity and generate a big impact on both women and men, and all the others in between.
