Engaging Men in Dialogue


Public engagement practitioners commonly note that it seems easier to garner participation from women in dialogue processes than it is to engage men.  Our friends at the Network for Peace through Dialogue have noticed the same issue, and we wanted to share their recent post highlighting the White Ribbon Campaign, a newly formed movement aimed at getting men involved in crucial conversations around gender, which you can read about below or find here: www.burl.co/241FDC2.

We at the Network for Peace through Dialogue are very interested in promoting and being involved in dialogue.  In our dialogue sessions, over the years we have noted that many more women attend and participate. In addition when the issue of conversation is related to gender and how men and women relate to one another there are even fewer men participating and very particularly on issues related to violence against women. We are exploring how we can involve more men in our conversations.

We have discovered the White Ribbon Campaign, 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.

We link you now to a very short video by Michael Kaufman, promoter of the White Ribbon Campaign on engaging men in gender issues.
