International Men’s Day is celebrated around the world on 19th November.

This year, the theme of International Men’s Day is men’s health and wellbeing and promoting a positive conversation about men and masculinity. The aim is to help address some of the issues that affect men and boys today, such as high male suicide rate, men’s health, male victims of violence and the negative portrayal of men.

IMD in the UK takes a gender inclusive approach and therefore believes in ensuring that issues affecting women and girls are also resolved. It also recognises the intersection between gender and other factors such as race and sexuality which can compound the inequalities affecting men and boys.

Here at WeAreTheCity, we will be showcasing events, covering news and continuing to shine a spotlight on the issues of wellbeing, equality and diversity.
