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 Carole Hooven, author of “T: The Story of Testosterone”; former lecturer and co-director of Undergraduate Studies Harvard University's Department of Human Evolutionary Biology, currently an associate in Harvard's Psychology Department, and non-resident senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), for her presentation, The Non-Toxic Nature of Masculinity.
