Redefining Masculinity in Sports

Sports are great. There’s no debate on all the character development they provide. But just watch ESPN, and seemingly every few months, we’re reminded that some of our sports stars or programs have deep-rooted character flaws. How do we address this BEFORE people become victims, suspensions are ordered, and jail time is served? How we raise our boys might be the key. This panel will discuss how redefining manhood in a hyper-masculine sports environment is a powerful way to spark real change.
