  Men Supporting #MeToo:

Taking Action to the Next Level


A Four Part Educational Webinar Series, Hosted By the North American MenEngage Network

Session Resources (readings, slides, recordings)


Through the #MeToo movement, the voice of survivors of sexual harassment have been loud and powerful. The #MeToo movement provides an opportunity to organize and mobilize men and boys, as active agents of change. This webinar series will explore current community-based efforts to rise to this challenge and some of the lessons learned from these efforts …

Participants will come away with new concepts and concrete examples that can be employed immediately. This series will build on what the NAMEN members have already been doing to address the issues brought up by #MeToo and explore ways to strengthen this work together.

Throughout this series we will focus on strategies to take these efforts to the next level, what policy and political action can be harnessed from men and boys who support #MeToo.

In addition, participants will be invited to join a facilitated, ongoing practice community to encourage and promote these kinds of efforts and encourage networking and resource sharing

With a series of four sessions, we will cover:

  • What has been Men's response to #MeToo? 
  • What are the opportunities for fostering male leadership in support of #MeToo?
  • What are the theoretical frameworks for promoting responsibility and accountability?  
  • What might be successful practice to put into place for your own community? 
  • 4 weeks later come back together to share what you have tried or are in the process of implementing and learnt. 
Please Join us for these engaging discussions.
