This course provides a strong case and rationale on why we need to engage men in our violence prevention and gender justice efforts. It also highlights key barriers of what is getting in men’s way to participate and how we can overcome these barriers. The course provides pragmatic strategies to get ourselves ready to work with men while outlining evidence-based actions on how we can effectively engage men that includes learning how to frame the calls for action.
