The Vermont Women’s Fund and Change The Story VT, along with our Champions for Change host committee, invite you to a breakfast with Ted Bunch, internationally recognized activist, educator and co-founder of A CALL TO MEN, an organization dedicated to changing the story for women by promoting healthy, respectful manhood. 

In our rapidly changing post-#MeToo world, the support of men is essential to elevating gender equity as an issue of social and economic importance in our state. 

Ted Bunch is a leading voice on how the traditional socialization of men and boys intersects with gender-based discrimination and violence against women. He will discuss how gender plays a role in each of our individual stories--as well as in the larger social and economic narrative of Vermont.

Meet Our Speaker:

Ted Bunch, with co-founder Tony Porter, started A CALL TO MEN to end all forms of violence and discrimination against women and girls while promoting a healthy, respectful manhood. The organization has worked on high school and college campuses, with the NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball, numerous corporations, the military, and government and social service agencies to shift attitudes and behaviors that devalue women, girls and other marginalized groups. Ted developed and implemented model programs for police, fire and other pre-hospital professionals responding to domestic violence. He is an international lecturer for the U.S. State Department and was appointed by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to UNiTE, an international network of male leaders working to end violence against women. His work has been featured in the U.K, Israel, Suriname, South Africa, Ghana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Brazil and Puerto Rico. Visit their website for more information.
