Working Together With Men
Over two years (to December 2023), the Gender Equity and Justice project will use innovative approaches to respond to and prevent inequality and gender-based violence across our VE and HE communities.
Central to this is the innovative Working Together With Men (WTWM) model.
It is a promising practice approach that engages men in forms of allyship to co-create small scale projects with those most impacted by gender-based violence. The model has been applied successfully and evaluated since 2016.
Shelley Hewson-Munro, RMIT’s Learning and Development Manager – Gender Justice and Men, is one of the original designers of the WTWM model and author of its key resource.
Shelley is a masculinities practitioner, social worker and research investigator in the working with men space.
She has been implementing and supervising several of the model's iterations since 2018 and is a leader in creating unique, feminist-informed projects that both challenge and action men for change.
