We believe more needs to be done to promote positive change towards gender equality and around what it means to be a man today – and we want to support boys and men to be their best selves and live happy, healthy, safe and respectful lives.
Modelling Respect and Equality (MORE) is a new program developed and run by The Men’s Project that will build people’s skills and knowledge to help them create change in their community around issues of respect and equality, particularly among boys and men.
The program runs for three months. It involves participation in an intensive two-day training workshop followed by ongoing support as participants contribute to positive social change in their community, at work, in sports club, and among friends and family.
If you want to build your knowledge and skills and make a positive difference in your community, then this program is for you.
We believe that role models – both male and female – in the places where boys and men live, work, and meet are crucial. We want to support role models who interact with boys and men on a regular basis so they can challenge limiting and harmful stereotypes and promote respect and equality.
It’s time we talked about the culture of masculinity we want to cultivate as a society. Join us in creating social change around what it means to be a man in the 21st century!
Modelling Respect and Equality (MORE) is an empowering, experiential journey to become an active influencer for change in your community.
Our starting point is each person’s personal journey and development – their awareness of the bigger picture, and understanding of how social change unfolds.
Participants will be supported to build deeper understanding of key issues, develop greater self-awareness, learn how to model and promote positive change, recognise and challenge problematic attitudes and behaviours, and actively influence and make an impact in their community.
MORE will help you:
MORE is free of cost. You give your time, passion and creativity. We will cover the rest.
Participants attend a two day intensive workshop – focused on personal reflection and growth, building awareness and understanding of the issues, developing skills to model and drive change within their own work, team and community.
This is followed by ongoing, active support for participants to identify and action opportunities and activities in their own communities, supported through online and offline peer support. The program wraps up with a half-day follow-up workshop that celebrates achievements, aims to solve problems and consolidates learnings.
The first round of Modelling Respect and Equality is currently underway.
A second round of the program will run from March to June 2019. Subscribe to The Men’s Project mailing list to be notified when applications for round two open.
