Ahead of its 3rd Global Symposium, MenEngage Global Alliance hosted a Board and Strategy Meeting from 17–21 February 2019, in Rwanda. The meeting was attended by representatives of network members from Africa, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, North America, Latin America and the Caribbean. Representing CariMAN were Executive Committee member, Dr Allister Collins, and Regional Secretariat Administrator, Kevin Liverpool.
The Strategy Meeting provided opportunities to co-create the 3rd Global Symposium to be held in Kigali, Rwanda in November 2020 and developed on a series of consultations, meetings and listening rounds that were conducted with Regional Networks of the Alliance, other MenEngage members and partners with experience in organizing conferences in our field of women’s rights, gender and social justice.
“The overall objective of the MenEngage Global Symposium is to strengthen the political focus of the work on transforming masculinities and engaging boys and men in women’s rights and gender justice, by creating space for critical and constructive analysis on the state of this field, in order to articulate a collective social justice and human-rights based agenda for this work in the coming years.
