Unpacking masculinities and engaging men in primary prevention

Discussion Description

Come and engage with experts in the primary prevention field to discuss key challenges in unpacking masculinities and engaging men. This session will explore potential ways to respond to challenges such as:
  • mobilising this work at institutional, policy, and structural levels (beyond working with individuals) 
  • crafting effective framing and messaging, that is, how to engage men in ways that are strength-based and gender transformative 
  • addressing male privilege and entitlement 
  • maintaining accountability to women
  •  managing backlash and resistance

Hear from a range of panellists working with diverse communities across different settings, and add your own challenges—and successes—to the discussion. Participants will leave the session equipped with some examples, tips and suggestions for rising to the difficult tasks and conversations in this complex area of work.
