Author and CEO, Tony Porter, will speak on leadership through the lens of healthy masculinity and men's responsibility to be allies and advocates to women, girls, and other marginalized communities.

Tony Porter is an author, educator, activist, and CEO of A Call to Men, a national nonprofit that works to advance gender and racial justice and create a more equitable society. Porter is internationally recognized for his efforts to prevent violence against women while promoting a healthy, respectful manhood. He is a leading voice on issues of manhood, male socialization, and preventing violence against all women and girls. Porter’s 2010 TED Talk has been named by GQ Magazine  as one of the “Top 10 TED Talks Every Man Should See.”

Porter is sought after for his in-depth understanding of the collective socialization of men and serves as an adviser to the National Football League, providing policy consultation, working extensively with player engagement, and facilitating violence prevention and healthy manhood training. He has also provided training to the National Basketball Association, National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, and Major League Baseball. He is an international lecturer for the U.S. State Department, having extensive global experience, including Brazil, India, and Africa, and has been a guest presenter to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. Porter has worked with the United States Military Academy at West Point and the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.

Porter is the author of “Breaking Out of the Man Box” and the visionary for “NFL Dads: Dedicated to Daughters.”
