Wade Davis to Speak on ‘The Mask of Masculinity’ Thursday
“The Mask of Masculinity: An Evening with Wade Davis,” will be held Thursday, March 24 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel. The event is free and open to the public. American Sign Language (ASL) and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be provided.
Davis, a former professional football player and current vice president at Netflix, works to engage, educate and empower men to better understand the attitudes and actions that are most associated with aspirational masculinity. In partnership with the White Ribbon Campaign of Vera House, this program seeks to unlock the potential of men and boys by seeking a world that is free of violence and abuse.
Brian Konkol, dean of Hendricks Chapel, is co-chair of this year’s White Ribbon Campaign. “The White Ribbon Campaign of Vera House is both an invitation and a promise. By inviting participants to imagine a far better world, we can promise each other opportunities to make it all so,” Konkol says. “I look forward to welcoming Wade Davis to Syracuse University as we nourish the spirit and soul of our beloved community.”
The White Ribbon Campaign of Vera House invites, equips and empowers men and boys as leaders in creating and sustaining healthy relationships in households and communities. Through education, advocacy, and philanthropy, White Ribbon Campaign participants are invited to actively promise each other a world that is free of violence and abuse.
