NORTH AMERICAN MENENGAGE NETWORK
A regional network for gender equality and healthy manhood
The North America MenEngage Network (NAMEN) is a newly formed regional network of organizations and individuals working with men and boys to achieve gender equality, end violence, and promote health for men, women and children in North America. NAMEN is not a formally registered organization, but rather a network of members with a steering committee drawn from the general membership responsible for decision-making, communications, and the management of collective activities.
Representing diverse fields of engaging men and boys
Bringing added value to current local, regional, national, and North American initiatives
Connected to the Global MenEngage Alliance
NAMEN is a regional member of the Global MenEngage Alliance, and has a seat on the Global Executive and Steering Committees along with representatives from Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and Europe. Global members include more than 400 NGOs from around the world.
We have an operating structure that includes a Steering Committee and Working Groups. Any member of NAMEN can join a working group. Steering committee members are elected for three year terms by the membership in the fall of each year.
