Men & Masculinities Learning Forum

September 15 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Women’s Health in the South East (WHISE) and the Promoting Respect and Equity Together (PRET) partnership is hosting another learning forum to share learnings and build workforce capacity across the region.

Everyone should be free to explore and develop who they are without the pressure of gender stereotypes. Sometimes it can be challenging, but it is not impossible. Join us to hear from partners and experts across the region as we discuss engaging men and boys to embrace healthy relationships, freeing themselves from unhealthy masculinities, and the role this plays in the prevention of gendered violence/violence against women.

Jesuit Social Services – The Men’s Project will provide an understanding around the importance of framing the Man Box research with men and boys. We will discover what they are planning, learning and hearing out in the field, along with gaining valuable insight into the future progress of this work and how it contributes to the prevention of gendered violence.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Council in collaboration with Family Life will share learnings from their recent Mornington Peninsula Communities Creating Change Project in 2020-2022 working with men, boys and the community to encourage healthier relationships and masculinities. A participant from the program will also join us to share his learnings and insight by being involved in the program.

Also, a representative from Relationships Australia Victoria will share his experiences in engaging men from culturally diverse backgrounds in conversations around healthy relationships for the prevention of gendered violence.

Following the presentations there will be opportunities to contribute and shape this ongoing work.
