The Beyond Male Role Models? research project has provided a unique opportunity to explore how young men who use welfare services view the gender of professional workers, and how those workers themselves (whether male or female) see gender issues being played out in their respective relationships. Important findings have also emerged in relation to what supports effective work with young men.
The Beyond Male Role Models? end of award conference took place on Thursday 12th of March 2015 and reported on the findings of the project. The conference also examined the implications for practice and policy through presentations and a short film made as part of the research. Professor David Morgan, (Emeritus Professor, Manchester University) opened the conference and was our chair for the day. We also had a presentation by Kate Mulley from Action for Children as well as Dr Stephen Hicks from The University of Manchester.
If you were unable to attend the conference, we have the pleasure of providing the audio recording of the conference below.
