Join us on October 14, 2015 from 11 am - 1 pm at Stratton Hall for our 3rd Annual Luncheon. The Voices 2015 luncheon boldly moves forward with keynote speaker Dr. Jackson Katz, an internationally recognized educator, author, filmmaker, and social theorist known for his groundbreaking work in gender violence prevention education. Dr. Katz message reinforces the Women's Fund 2015 strategic goal of advocating against the root causes of violence against women.
Dr. Katz is the co-founder of the multiracial, mixed-gender Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program at Northeastern University's Center for the Study of Sport in Society and a key architect of the "bystander" approach for gender violence prevention.
Like Dr. Katz, the Women's Fund believes when women are safe and economically secure, their entire community is better. At Voices, he will bring his insights on masculinity and gender violence to our guests, as he has to millions of college and high school students and professionals in education, human services, public health, and law enforcement. Dr. Katz holds degrees from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and Harvard University and a Ph. D in cultural studies and education from UCLA. Dr. Jackson Katz asks a very important question that gets at the root of why sexual abuse, rape and domestic abuse remain a problem: What's going on with men? on his TEDtalk.
The event will begin with the Power of the Purse silent auction at 11 am – 11:45 am, with the program beginning immediately at 11:45 – 1:00 pm.
