Men advocating change: What world do we want? by Evert Slob

Series Men advocating change presents What world do we want? by Evert Slob

It is important that we become aware of the fact that we are all born and bred in a sexist world. It was not our choice and yet we cannot blame anyone. The question is: How did it get like this and can we change direction? Let’s try a smaller question first: Can we develop diversity and inclusion inside ourselves, foster and nourish it and find it valuable?

This one-hour interactive session explores with you the questions on what we need and can do ourselves to change our society to make it a better place for all of us than it is today. It starts with awareness of our internal values, the roles we play, the (not so) hidden yet systematic, abundant and diverse forms of violence against women and how to diversify ourselves to make the sexist inside us disappear (in the long run, hopefully).
