TUVAL DINNER – Guest Speaker – International Women's Week
|Friday, March 08, 2013|
|13:00 to 14:30|
Tuval Dinner is the Community and Youth Engagement Manager for the White Ribbon Campaign. He has over 10 years of experience working with youth and educators, mainly focusing on program development and facilitation around issues of gender, masculinity, and healthy relationships with young men. He talks with over 6000 students a year promoting a new vision of relationships and manhood. White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity. Starting in 1991, we asked men to wear white ribbons as a pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls. Since then the White Ribbon has spread to over 60 countries around the world. We work to examine the root causes of gender-based violence and create a cultural shift that helps bring us to a future without violence. Our vision is for a masculinity that embodies the best qualities of being human. We believe that men are part of the solution and part of a future that is safe and equitable for all people.
