COURSE: How are Men and Boys Unequal?

How are Men and Boys Unequal (and what can we do about it)? Glen Poole announces a one day course for professionals to take place in Brighton this July. Ed

Helping Men has designed a new course for anyone concerned with issues of gender equality called How are Men and Boys Unequal (and what can we do about it)?

Who’s the course for?

The course is designed for all professionals concerned with any aspect of equalities work and in particular those who focus on matters of sex equality and gender equality.

What are the aims of the course?

The aim of this course is to leave you with a deeper understanding of how to include men and boys in your equalities thinking. This one day workshops helps you to explore ways in which we can tackle the inequalities that men and boys face, as well as finding ways to engage men and boys as change agents who can help promote equality for all.

What will you learn on the course?

  • The key inequalities that men and boys experience
  • What the law says you should be doing to address these inequalities
  • How working with men and boys can benefit women and girls
  • The key barriers that men and boys face
  • How you can become more effective at promoting gender equality

Key course content:

Men, Boys and Equality. How do we measure inequality? What are the key inequalities that men and boys face as a distinct group with specific needs? What does the law say about the ways we should be including men and our equalities work?

How Does This Help Women? Gender equality work is often thought to be a zero-sum game, which means that if one side wins, the other side loses. How does tackling the inequalities that men and boys face help women and girls and how can we ensure that focussing on men and boys helps to promote equality for all?

The Barriers that Men Face. One of the key themes of equalities work is identifying and addressing the barriers that different groups face. So what are the key barriers that men and boys face and what can we do to help overcome them?

New Approaches to Gender Equality. This final session provides some great examples of good practice to help you tackle the inequalities that men and boys face. We’ll also support you to explore and identify ways in which you can work with men and boys in the future to help promote equality for all.

How can I take the course?

“How are Men and Boys Unequal (and what can we do about it)?” can be delivered as an in-house course anywhere in the UK. We also hold open courses at various times throughout the year
