Michael Conroy delivers bespoke training, presentations and
workshops on ‘Understanding the Man-Box: Social Influences
on Boys & Young Men’ to professionals in a wide range of
settings. The work has taken him to Primary and Secondary
schools, FE colleges, Universities, Youth Justice Service, Early
Help, CSE / CSA teams, Fire & Rescue Service, Local Authorities & Parliament.
He has worked in Secondary Education for 15 years, delivering a wide range of citizenship and well-being programmes for students in Years 7-13 and, increasingly, offering targeted CPD for school staff in unpicking social influences on boys and young men and how they can manifest in a range of problematic behaviours.
Recent engagements include the National Education Union’s ‘Challenging Sexism in Schools’ conferences (London & Croydon) and the National Men in Early Years Conference (Bristol).
Michael also organises regional and national conferences which
take a holistic and linked approach to male socialization and accountability –
relating to Violence-Reduction, Domestic Abuse, Coercive Control, Street Harassment and Sexual Harassment in the workplace as well as male mental health, emotional expressiveness and risk-taking behaviour.
He recorded a TEDx Youth Talk in October 2017 and in December 2017 was an expert contributor to the Women & Equalities Select Committee in Parliament on the topic of Sexual Harassment.
“Michael’s session was incredibly insightful, with close links to our goals and mission to create a generation of empowered young people.”
