2017 Summit Report

The 4th Annual Healthy Men and Boys Summit was a huge success! Our one-day Summit, Raising Emotionally and Socially Connected Boys: Exploring Intersections of Gender, Race and Trauma, was dynamic and engaging, and served as a rare opportunity for 180 professionals from 10 states to convene around urgent healthy masculinity topics.

We are celebrating and reflecting on our growth – both physical and programmatic – and express our gratitude to our dedicated board, staff and consultants, generous sponsors, hard-working volunteers, expert presenters, all participants, and the staff at the College of the Holy Cross, which served as our event location.

This 2017 Summit Report offers a summary of participant demographics, program highlights, images, participant feedback, and future engagement opportunities. We hope you find this a useful resource in our collective work of raising emotionally and socially connected boys.
