Talk About Men: International Men's Day Masculinity Debate

To mark International Men's Day in Sydney on Thursday 19th November 2015, five great speakers will debate the question:

"If masculinity is in crisis, what needs to change, men or society?"

The speakers will include:

  • Greg Andresen of the One in Three campaign for male victims of family violence
  • Nic Tovey, founder of Soulcraft which providers coaching and counselling for men
  • Greg Millan, men's health specialist and President of the Men's Health Forum NSW
  • Tanveer Ahmed, psychiatrist, author and local politician 
  • Dave Merrick, teacher

Anyone who's got a personal or professional interest in men's issues in Australia will want to come along and take part in this lively discussion, which will include a Q&A session where audience members get to have their say.

The event will be chaired by Glen Poole, the UK's co-ordinator for International Men's Day and all monies raised will be donated to Dads In Distress (DIDS), which provides peer support for separated parents.

DIDS board member, Pete Nicholls, will host the evening and provide a short overview of the organisation's work.

The theme of this year's International Men's Day is "Making a Difference for Men and Boys", so if you're someone who's interested or concerned with making a difference for males in Australia then this event is a great opportunity for you to:
