Recently, there’s been an explosion of writing regarding the benefits of ‘healthy masculinity’ – better health, improved relationships and greater life satisfaction. But it hasn’t hit the mainstream or had deep cultural impact – yet.
Despite a generation of men wanting to live more flexible, fuller lives, our social attitudes, workplaces and public policy still largely reflect men in outdated modes: the male breadwinner, the stoic man, the footy fan, the tough man.
In honour of International Men’s Day 2020, join us for an exploration of masculinity – from the source of traditional norms and expectations, to encouraging new initiatives in schools, companies and communities that are helping to shift the narrative and redefine what it means to be a man.
This webinar was recorded on Thursday 19 November
