Men's Leadership in Fostering Gender Equity
A breakfast discussion with Jackson Katz, PhD.
Jackson Katz, PhD has long been a major figure and thought leader in the growing global movement of men working to promote gender equality and prevent sexual assault and all types of harassment, abuse, and violence. He is co-founder of the multiracial, mixed-gender Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program, one of the longest-running and most widely influential gender violence prevention programs in North America and beyond. MVP was the first large-scale prevention initiative in college and professional sports culture and in the U.S. military. MVP introduced “bystander” training to the sexual assault and domestic violence prevention fields; Katz is one of the early architects of this now broadly popular prevention approach.
