The last few decades have seen rapid changes in gender relations and norms—in the household, in the workforce, and in government. The 2023-24 Jepson Leadership Forum invites speakers to discuss masculinity in the context of these recent cultural changes.

Specific topics include the role of hormones in gender identity and behavior, status competition and violence, challenges facing men as a result of the changing nature of the family and the economy, Black masculinity in the United States, and the past and future of patriarchy globally.

Join us as we welcome Rob Henderson, social psychologist, U.S. Air Force veteran, and author whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Boston Globe, for his presentation, Understanding the Young Male Syndrome.
