Men's Issues Awareness Project - Researcher/Writer

    Toronto, ON

DESCRIPTION

The Canadian Association for Equality is committed to achieving equality for all Canadians, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, family status, race, ethnicity, creed, age or disability. In particular, we are interested in gender equality, that is on achieving equality for all men, women, girls and boys. While we support all efforts at achieving gender equality, we will work for balance and fairness within this societal project by focusing our limited resources on those areas of gender which are understudied in contemporary culture. This has led us to a current focus on the status, health and well-being of boys and men, where attention, investment and support for educational and social programs stands at a level that is far from equal to the seriousness of the problem, while also being significantly underdeveloped compared to the resources in other important areas of social improvement.

Major areas of concern:

* Boys crises - Education, drop out, under-enrolment * Workplace Issues eg. Workplace safety * Men's Health * Family law/Fathers rights * Men and Violence (domestic violent, warfare) * Crime and Punishment/Legal Biases against Men * Media, Social and Cultural Misandry * Academic Misandry We provide current evidence-based research and balanced information.

We also provides opportunities to engage in furthering this cause by participating in discussions, events and family-friendly activities. We sincerely believe the goal of true equality and human rights is best served by conducting inclusive conversations based on facts and evidence, not by promoting ideology or special interest agendas. CAFE is looking for individuals to undertake research and policy writing in a variety of areas, including boys issues, fathers issues and men's health. Those with a research and policy writing background are especially encouraged to apply.
