In this provocative talk, men’s expert and inspirational speaker, Rick Broniec, will speak about the state of men and masculinity in our contemporary world. Using statistics and poignant stories, Rick will highlight the crisis men, boys- and by extension- all society is facing. Men are at a crossroads: either we cling to old, outmoded behaviors and beliefs about masculinity or we wake up and embrace an evolutionary model of what it can mean, must mean, to be a man.
Rick will share the latest research about the state of men in the US (and the world!). More important, he will offer insights into what we, as caring, loving and reasoning humans, can do right now to help boys and men through this transition. He will share the CLASSICS Model of evolving masculinity, developed as the theme of his latest book, as a template to follow for men who wish to heal and for women who want to help. It’s beyond time for men to Wake Up, Grow Up and Show Up!
