Feedback form is now closed.
In the race to have the fastest and best models of tech in what we judge will make an impact on people’s lives, we often times find ourselves operating from a head space and not dropping into the rest of our bodies and even disregarding our emotions. On the other hand, one of the leading underlying causes for trauma and wounds for men in our world is the way that patriarchy denies boys and men their right to process and feel emotions.

In this session, facilitator cynthia and co-facilitator Nico will hold space for men to discuss what it means to be a man doing work in tech? What are the expectations that are projected on us on the field? How does the image of “the guy in tech” affect the behaviors of men in male dominated spaces? And how does male performance in turn impact women in the tech field?

We hope that after this session, a greater sense of balancing the masculine with the feminine will allow men to show in their whole capacities, and liberate themselves from expectations and need to perform the right kind of masculinity.

Session Rundown
This will be an intimate conversation that will run for around 75 minutes.

We hope to host 10 to 15 people. Participants are asked to come with an open heart and an open spirit and will be asked to be as open as they can and want to be with one another.
