The Working with Men and Boys for Social Justice Assessment Tool is a new tool for assessing community programs for men and boys. It aims to provide leaders, designers and facilitators of programs or initiatives for men and boys the opportunity to review, reflect on and strengthen principles of gender and social justice. The Tool comprises key aspects that support positive social change in programs designed for men and boys.
The Tool is relevant for work with men and boys across a wide range of fields and issues, including violence prevention, health and wellbeing, restorative justice, parenting, and other areas.
The Working with Men and Boys for Social Justice Assessment Tool is intended for use by:
- Organisations and advocates seeking to assess and improve their own work with men and boys;
- Organisations and advocates seeking to open discussion with program leaders, facilitators and participants about the strengths of their program and what they could focus on to improve their program;
- Others seeking to assess the merits of work among men and boys.
Policymakers, funders, and other practitioners may find the Tool useful in identifying elements of good practice, although the Tool is best completed by organisations and practitioners who are themselves implementing programs.
The Tool is accompanied by a wealth of resources on improving particular aspects of programs.
