What Do President Obama, John Oliver, and The Rock Have in Common?

2015 was the year that masculinity became a global topic of conversation. It started in January when audiences packed houses at the Sundance Film Festival to see The Mask You Live In. Then teachers and educators across the world lined up to use the film and curricula to enhance their students’ social-emotional learning. And you took the conversation to your friends, family, and workplace. Thank you!

To help you further the conversation, this year we focused our fourth annual video retrospective on the state of masculinity. Check out “What did it mean to ‘be a man’ in 2015?” above and share it with your network. Together, we will challenge and overcome limiting stereotypes so that everyone can be their true selves and fulfill their human potential.
