The UWS Boys Empowered Community Summit, hosted by United Women Singapore, is an annual event that aims to create a supportive community by empowering youth to become male allies for gender equality.
Through knowledge sharing and community building, the summit brings together male youth (17-25 year old) and the stakeholders (parents, educators, and social service agencies) to redefine masculinity.
Themed ‘Re-Coding Masculinity’, the 2023 summit held on 14 July will focus on youth cyber wellness and mental wellness. The summit will unpack the role of masculinity in affecting these issues and how the community and stakeholders can play a part in supporting young men.
The summit will focus on youth cyber wellness and mental wellness, as well as looking at how our own perceptions and expectations of boys and men are affecting these issues and their development. We all have a part to play in supporting young men as they grow into their own person!
