A CALL TO MEN
Description: 

September 14 - 15, 2017

A CALL TO MEN's 2017 National Conference will explore the Many Faces of Manhood. Through engaging keynotes, roundtable discussions and interactive breakout sessions, attendees will learn how the collective socialization of men creates a fertile ground for violence and discrimination against women and girls. Those same notions of sexism and inequality hold men hostage to the rigid norms of manhood. A CALL TO MEN will convene influential and passionate voices to examine healthy, respectful manhood in athletics, education, incarceration, fatherhood, faith communities and around issues of gender. As men are empowered to be their authentic selves, we will collectively create a world where all men and boys are loving and respectful and all women and girls are valued and safe.

Conference Speakers Include:

DR. BETH RICHIE Director, Institute of Research on Race & Public Policy, University of Illinois - Chicago

RUS FUNK Co-Founder, North American Men Engage Network WADE DAVIS Senior Diversity & Inclusion Consultant, YSC

TONY PORTER CEO, A CALL TO MEN

Since 2006, CCAW has provided over 10,000 professionals with the most relevant, state-of-the-art and up-to-date information, tools and strategies taught by the leading experts in their respective fields. We present an educational forum of best practices, victim-centered policies, promotion of multi-disciplinary dialogue and collaborative community models, along with real-life tools and strategies that professionals take back to their own communities.CCAW's long-term goal is to eliminate violence against women and children, more specifically sexual assault, in every community. We will achieve this by arming attendees with the information needed to identify, respond to, investigate, and prosecute unique, difficult cases successfully. CCAW offers more than 156 workshops, case presentations, hands-on technology seminars, and computer labs that are taught by local and national experts who delve into the complexities of these heinous crimes and provide the most cutting edge, relevant, and creative tools that attendees utilize in their professions. Attendees include professionals that work in the fields of prosecution, law enforcement, social work, counseling, health care, emergency telecommunications, victim advocacy, probation, parole, campus safety and other disciplines that respond directly to female victims of violent crimes.
