Michael has worked in Secondary Education in England for 14 years. During the course of this work he came across the organisation A CALL TO MEN UK which seeks to engage boys and young men in ending male violence against women and girls by critically reflecting on how boys and men are ‘collectively socialised’ by society to think, act and view themselves and, by extension, to view and treat women and girls.
Michael spent several years as Development Coordinator for ACTM UK, work which took him to many UK Universities, high schools and primaries, as well as Youth Justice, Early Help and Family Support settings, working both directly with boys and young men and the teaching and support staff who work with them. He has recorded a TEDx Youth Talk (Birmingham, Oct ’17) and spoke as an expert guest on the Parliamentary Women & Equalities Select Committee session on Sexual Harassment and its causes.
Michael is the founder of Men At Work Org - dedicated to supporting educators of all kinds in engaging boys & young men in constructive dialogues around cultural messages around 'how to be a man. http://www.menatworkorganisation.org
