There are a lot of people who can speak eloquently about the need to engage men and boys, promote equity and inclusion in the workplace, prevent violence in your community… I offer you specialized training and technical assistance that help you do what it is you want to do. I can offer a view of what it is, but more effectively, I can help you create a plan on how to get there!
In my efforts, I help you develop a strategic plan, increase your confidence and skills, examine your organizational structure and culture, and develop the resource streams to help sustain your efforts.

I offer services in three areas:  engaging men and boys (supporting social services, community-based agencies, and others to effectively reach out to and connect with men and boys), violence prevention, and equity and diversity.

I offer these services, by providing training, ongoing technical assistance and policy review.
