Dr. Michael Kaufman Speaking Topics

We Can End Violence Against Women!

Far too many women face a grave threat each and every day. How can we end physical, sexual, and emotional violence against women? This talk, drawing on Michael Kaufman’s pioneering work around the world with the United Nations and his role as co-founder of the White Ribbon Campaign, analyzes the root causes of this violence and charts an optimistic pathway for women and men to work together to end the violence.

Guy’s Guide to Feminism … the talk

Really now. How should men react to feminism? Are we screwed forever? Or liberated? Set up for collective blame or about to experience a new era of better relationships? And what do men really need to know about feminism? Based on his hit-Indie book co-written with Michael Kimmel, Michael Kaufman explores what men need to know about feminism and how they can react in a positive way to these momentous changes. An incomparable night of humor, serious conversation, story-telling, and hard-hitting analysis.

Man Talk! Ending Campus Sexual Assault & the Three Secrets of a Great Relationship

Our campuses have a big problem. But the truth is that most men want good relationships (whether it’s for one-night or the rest of your life.) Campus men want the women we care about to feel safe. This talk, full of stories, humor, and packed with information, looks at the root causes of dating violence. It challenges stereotypes and the actions of some men, but does not dump on guys. It gives clear information about consent. It deals with serious issues, but it’s fun and very positive. It gets to the heart and soul (and, yes, other things) of how to build relationships that will make you feel good. A real crowd pleaser.

Men, Business, and the Gender Equality Advantage.

For too long we were told it was a battle of the sexes. For too long bringing equality between women and men to our workplaces, homes and communities seemed like a zero-sum game, with women winning and men losing. Even if this were true, supporting equality would be the right thing to do. But Michael Kaufman's work with corporations, governments, the UN, and NGOs over the past thirty-five years has shown this just isn't true—if we learn to manage it right. This talk, full of Michael's celebrated stories and humour, shows what men will gain by supporting equality. It shows the advantages that come to businesses and public institutions that embrace gender equality. It looks at the importance of corporate responsibility and leadership on issues ranging from ending violence against women to supporting the social and workplace changes that allow women and men to find work-life balance and to support the new parenting roles that men are playing. It's a fun and positive look of our own ideals of manhood that will give practical tools to leaders to bring into their own corporations...and lives.
