The Men’s Project can tailor co-facilitated workshops for staff and/or students that draw on The Man Box research, our Modelling Respect and Equality Program as well as speakers from our Just Voices program.
Positive attitudinal change about what it means to be a man
Through research, community engagement, and advocacy we will seek positive attitudinal change about what it means to be a man in the 21st century. Through partnerships and support for people and organisations that work with boys and men we will share what we know and build understanding and skills when it comes to these issues.
MoRE (Modelling Respect and Equality)
MoRE is an innovative program for men and women, aged 18 and above who are in roles that present opportunities to positively influence boys and men. This includes teachers, social workers, sports coaches and leaders in faith communities. The program is offered by The Men’s Project and aims to 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.
It is an empowering, experiential journey to become an active influencer for change in your community. The program therefore runs for six 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.
To date 60 participants have taken part in MoRE. Here’s what some of them had to say:
“Brilliant – I feel exhausted but so full from this. Thank you so much for providing this opportunity.”
“Thanks for ensuring the training was not only a 2 day session but a path for continual learning”
“Thanks and well done on creating a movement – community and one that not only engages our internal commitment to equality and respect for all humans”
“Thank you immensely for the privilege of being part of MoRE. It leaves its mark on me – indelibly. It shapes how I train educators in Respectful Relationships because I have experienced personal growth and new awareness of and optimism around what may be possible through the MoRE experience!”
“The facilitators and program leaders were amazing in terms of their knowledge, experience and wisdom in guiding the group. The COP worked well to continue to build a learning community. The focus of this training on building capacity through individual reflection and community (vs a short PD) is unique and is incredibly powerful in terms of changing practice and effecting change back in our circles of influence”.
Just Voices Speakers Program connects with the community in unique and unforgettable ways. We offer inspiring motivational keynote speakers, musicians and story tellers from diverse communities, cultures and lived experiences. Our speakers and performing artists share their stories, culture and artistry to open up conversation in an engaging way including about what it means to be a man. Our presentations are different, just like each of our presenters, however all stories come with positive messages of resilience and can be adapted to any age or group size.
The Men’s Project can tailor co-facilitated workshops for workplaces and schools that draw on The Man Box research, our Modelling Respect and Equality Program as well as speakers from our Just Voices program. To engage participants and promote learning, the workshops would include interactive activities and draw on different types of knowledge including lived experience.
The messages delivered during workshops can be adapted depending on the contexts and objectives that we will identify in partnership with your workplace or school leadership.
