The forum included a day-long, invitational workshop on Thursday, December 6th and a morning public event on Friday, December 7th.

The day-long workshop brought together international and national civil society, scholars, policy shapers and members of the diplomatic community to examine how a more inclusive approach, specifically focusing on masculine gender norms and male identities, could advance the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. A variety of structures were used to engage all participants in conversation throughout the day in understanding our collective role in moving the WPS agenda forward in policy and practice.
