NAMEN Member Meet-Ups
NAMEN is now hosting Member Meet-Ups on a regular basis. These are for members to meet one another and to talk about subjects of mutual interest. The topics are member generated using a regular survey and discussion during meetings.
We currently plan for meeting every other month. Watch here and in Events for upcoming dates.

TOPIC: Restarting our NAMEN Member Meet-ups
We are happy to be able to offer again the NAMEN Member Meet-up. After a year's hiatus, we plan to operate regularly starting in June and offer discussion topics most relevant to our members.
To this end, we have two topics today:
6. January 21, 2021
TOPIC -- Conversation: Stemming from our recent Symposium, how are we thinking about including intersectionality and decolonization in how we approach our work?
5. November 19, 2020
TOPIC -- Overview of the NAMEN State of the Field Report and a Call for Feedback
NAMEN has produced a draft “State of the Field” Report of the male engagement/mobilizing efforts in Canada and the US (to be released in early 2021). This report identifies trends, practices, methodologies and lessons being learned in the efforts to engage and mobilize meno in this region.
This Member Meet Up will provide an overview of the report, identify the key findings and additional questions that emerged from this report. We will then engaged you in a critical conversation about this report, including implications that you see from this report for our efforts going forward. We intend to integrate key points from this conversation into the final report.
Rus Funk, NAMEN Program Consultant and Author of the report will provide the overview and facilitate this conversation.
