Developing Healthy Manhood Workshop At UNM-LA

As part of the grant received by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, UNM-Los Alamos (UNM-LA), in collaboration with TEWA Women United, invites the community to a workshop that explores how men and boys can cultivate respectful masculinity and define their position on opposing sexual violence against women and girls. The workshop, titled “Healthy Manhood: Men and Boys’ Role in Building Beloved Community,” will be offered from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. Monday, November 5, 2018, in Building 2, Room 230 on the UNM-LA campus, 4000 University Drive. Refreshments will be served.

The presenter, Scott Davis, is a project manager for a Native women-owned construction firm that rehabilitates Native housing in Northern New Mexico. Through this work he has developed close relationships with individuals at TEWA Women United in Espanola, which has helped him gain insight to the female perspective on issues related to sexual violence against women. Davis is also a resource trainer for “A CALL TO MEN,” an international violence prevention organization that explores issues of male socialization and its intersection with violence.  

Davis will facilitate a discussion on how our society can raise a healthier generation of young men. His topics will include the socialization of men, men’s role in ending gender violence, and how to build healthy ideas about masculinity. Scott states, “It is up to us, well-meaning men, to create a culture of manhood that respects and values ALL women and girls. Together as men, we can end the violence.”
