Civil Rights Compliance for Race-Targeted or Sex-Specific Programming

The Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education invites you to participate in an important webinar:

Civil Rights Compliance for Race-Targeted or Sex-Specific Programming

(Wednesday, July 8, 2015, from 2-3pm ET)

District officials, staff, and other interested persons will have the opportunity to ask questions on how to comply with federal civil rights laws while developing programs that target their recruiting or services on discrete populations in need.

More Than a Few Good Men – A Lecture on American Manhood and Violence Against Women

How can we encourage men to attend programs on sex and gender issues? How can we encourage men to move beyond defensiveness on the subject of rape and other forms of gender violence? How can we educate men about these issues without blaming them for centuries of sexism and gender oppression? In More Than a Few Good Men, Jackson Katz addresses these topics head-on. This acclaimed program inspires men and women to confront one of the most serious and persistent problems facing college students: violence against women. The subjects he covers include sexual and domestic violence, but also pornography, prostitution and stripping. Traditionally, these issues have been considered “women’s issues.” More Than a Few Good Men, by contrast, focuses on the lives and attitudes of boys and men. In a provocative presentation that interposes irreverent humor with unpleasant reality, Katz stimulates dialogue between the sexes by helping to illuminate how the problems of individual women and men are linked to larger social forces. More Than a Few Good Men is not the typical lecture about men behaving badly. With his witty, engaging, and personal speaking style, Katz:

  • Shares stories from his pioneering gender violence prevention work with U.S. Marines, professional and collegiate athletes, and college fraternities.
  • Illustrates how the sports culture, comedy, advertising, and other media depictions of men, women, sex and violence contribute to pandemic levels of gender violence.
  • Conveys a cutting edge analysis of masculinity and sexual politics.
  • Shows, with humor, how homophobia prevents many men, and women, from dealing honestly with sexism.
  • Draws connections between the campus culture of drinking and the incidence of sexual assault.

More on Jackson Katz:

In 1993 he co-founded the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program at Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society.  The mixed-gender, multiracial MVP program is one of the most widely implemented and influential sexual and relationship abuse prevention programs in schools, colleges, sports culture and the military in North America and beyond. MVP introduced the “bystander” approach to the gender violence prevention field; Katz is one of the key architects of this now broadly popular approach. In 1997 Katz created and directed the first worldwide gender violence prevention program in the history of the U.S. Marine Corps. He and his colleagues have been centrally involved in the development and implementation of system-wide bystander intervention training in the U.S. Air Force and Navy.  MVP has also worked with the U.S. Army on bases in the States and overseas in Iraq. Katz’s award-winning educational videos Tough Guise  and Tough Guise 2, his featured appearances in the films Wrestling With Manhood and Spin The Bottle, and his thousands of lectures in North America and overseas have brought his insights into issues of gender and violence to millions of college and high school students as well as professionals in education, human services, public health and law enforcement. His TED talk, “Violence against Women is a Men’s Issue,” has been viewed more than 2 million times. He is the author of The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help, and Leading Men: Presidential Campaigns and the Politics of Manhood. He is the founder and director of MVP Strategies, which provides gender violence prevention training to institutions in the public and private sectors. Katz speaks extensively in the U.S. and around the world on topics related to violence, media and multiracial, multinational masculinities. Katz has a BA in philosophy from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, a Masters from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a Ph.D. in cultural studies and education from UCLA.
