Speaker Jackson Katz, Ph.D., will outline key conceptual frameworks and practical tools for engaging men and young men in the prevention of sexual assault and relationship
abuse. He will also discuss the relationship between men's violence against women and men's violence against other men, and themselves, all with an intersectional analysis that links incidents of interpersonal abuse to larger institutional and societal forces, and the belief systems that underlie them.
Katz is an internationally renowned educator, author, and filmmaker who is one of the leading figures in the growing global movement of men working to prevent gender-based violence. He is co-founder of the multiracial, mixed-gender Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program, one of the longest-running and most widely influential gender violence prevention programs in North America and beyond. MVP was the first large-scale prevention initiative in sports culture and the U.S. military, and introduced "bystander" training to the sexual assault and domestic violence prevention fields. Katz is the author of numerous articles and two books, including the classic bestseller The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help. He created the award-winning Tough Guise educational documentary series, as well as The Bystander Moment: Transforming Rape Culture at Its Roots.
