    1. Intersectionality: An Essential Framework for Addressing Male Intimate Partner Violence Against Women.
      3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

      One of the critiques of programs for men who batter women is that most of them lack analysis and practices that are responsive to marginalized men and their communities. Specifically, these programs are said to be structured to align with the needs of White middle class men and the criminal justice system. The goal of this session is to discuss why programs for men who abuse women must function at the intersection of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, etc. if their goal is safety for women and their children.

      Goals:
      1. Discuss the core tenets of Interesctionality.
      2. Examine the resistance to an Intersectionality Framework in addressing male intimate partner violence against women.
      3. Discuss the implications of employing an Intersectional approach to preventing male intimate pa

    1. Why We Should Address Diversity in Intervention Programs
      9:45 am – 11:15 am

      Faculty: Oliver Williams, Ulester Douglas, Jeremy NeVilles-Sorrell, and Fernando Mederos

      Description: In the field of domestic violence we typically operate from a pro-feminist perspective and cognitive behavioral approach. Although very helpful and important, most batterers tend to be resistant to education and treatment. Is what we are doing enough, or are some programs missing something that may engage batterers on this issue even more? The purpose of this panel is to explore what may engage men in BIP’s even more based on their social context, their faith tradition or their culture.

    1. Policy and Practice Implications of Using and Intersectional Framework to Engage Men in Preventing Male Violence Against Women.
      10:45 am – 11:45 am

      Intersectionality as a theoretical and organizing framework has been around long before Kimberle Crenshaw coined the term in her ground breaking work of the late eighties and early nineties. It has been embraced as a major organizing tool by many progressive movements while critiqued by others as “methodologically murky.” Intersectionality is defined as the ways race, class, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, status and other markers of difference intersect to inform individual realities and lived experiences. The goal of this presentation is to highlight some of the policy and practice implications of using this framework to engage men in preventing male violence against women.

    1. Principles and Practices of an Intersectional Approach to Engaging Men in Preventing Male Violence Against Women
      10:45 am – 11:45 am

      The issue of men’s role and responsibility in the women-lead movement to end violence against women remains thorny. One of the many tensions is the reality that men are both the primary perpetrators of violence against women as well as potential allies to women–This tension is especially evident when organizing to engage men in our prevention efforts. Inherent in these strains are issues of social locations such as race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, class, ability and other status. The goal of this workshop is to offer organizing principles and strategies for engaging men that are informed by these reinforcing identities.
