Watch Jack's TEDWomen talk on The Future of Men Movement here:
FOR THE BETTER
AFTER BEING TOLD ALL THEIR LIVES TO “BE A MAN” AND “MAN UP,” TODAY’S MEN ARE REJECTING MACHO STEREOTYPES, REWIRING THEIR EMOTIONAL LIVES, AND ARE MORE ACTIVELY PARENTING.
However, this new generation of men are often conflicted by their desire to be better & the retained influence of negative patriarchy. The Future of Men explores the roots of patriarchy, explains how to combat its sustained influence, and examines how men and women can work together to create better fathers, sons, husbands, coworkers and relationship partners.

Think about how men have been portrayed in TV sitcoms and commercials, as the idiot or buffoon unable to diaper a baby or know which medicine to take for a cold. Or worse, the commercials that honor and glorify misogyny and sexism.
For Gen-Z, these skills are gender neutral, just as being more competitive and assertive, gaining technical competencies, and adapting to change are gender neutral. Companies can rethink talent assessment, motivational, and leadership training tools and programs to embrace, advance and retain their young team members.
