BCCIC Webinar – Working with Men and Boys for Gender Equality (Feb 27)
Join us on February 27th from 12.30 pm to 2 pm (PST) for a webinar on best practices for working with men and boys to support gender equality. In response to member demand, this webinar will explore the sometimes challenging terrain of how international cooperation organizations can best include men and boys in the discussion, promotion and practice of gender equality. The webinar will provide an overview of the role of men and boys in gender equality programmes before exploring case studies that provide positive and practical examples of how to engage men and boys in gender equality work. The webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Laura Parisi from the University of Victoria (full bio below) and will also address:
- The debates over including men and boys in development work.
- Why masculinities matter.
- How FIAP addresses the inclusion of men and boys in development work.
