Engaging Men in Sexual Violence Prevention
April 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
How can we positively engage men in sexual assault prevention efforts?
What are the best strategies for helping men understand their role in violence prevention?
How can we encourage men to think critically about gender roles and violence?
Please join Dr. Hines for a discussion about enlisting men in efforts around sexual assault prevention. Understandably, men have often been targeted as being part of the problem on campus. While there are valid reasons for this, Steve would like you to join him in a discussion about a different approach to getting men engaged in prevention work. We will explore the importance of having men involved in sexual assault prevention, as well as addressing some potential challenges. Finally, Steve will share his experiences working with identified groups of men on campus (i.e. student athletes and fraternity men).
