The Mask You Live In, an award-winning film that challenges Americans to reconsider what we mean by “be a man,” was the focus of a recorded panel discussion presented by Vision 2020. The film was created by Vision 2020 Allied Organization The Representation Project.
The discussion illuminates and expands on the issues raised in the film. Insights from panel members help boys and men understand why they may feel trapped in “the man box.” Panel members also help girls and women understand the peer pressures placed on boys and men to stay in the box.
Moderating the interactive discussion was Peter J. Dean, Ph.D., founder and president, Leaders By Design, author of Cultivating Leaders, The Coachable Leader and Leadership for Everyone. The panel was comprised of leaders in the gender equality movement:
- Caroline Heldman, Ph.D., chair of critical theory and social justice at Occidental College in Los Angeles and vice president of research and insights at the Geena Davis Institute for Gender in Media, a Vision 2020 Allied Organization
- Allen Riddick, a Vision 2020 Delegate from Pennsylvania and director, supplier inclusion at Drexel University
- Michael Chamberlain, a Vision 2020 Delegate from New York, vice president, community & convening programs, and pivotal in the development of Men Advocating Real Change (MARC) at Catalyst
