Keynote Speaker Announced
Dr. Jackson Katz
We are excited to announce that Dr. Jackson Katz will be a keynote speaker at the Summit this year. Jackson Katz is an educator, author, filmmaker and cultural theorist who is internationally renowned for his activism on issues of gender and violence. In 1993, Dr. Katz co-founded the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program at Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society. The mixed-gender, multiracial MVP program is one of the longest-running and most widely influential sexual assault and relationship abuse prevention programs in colleges, high schools, sports culture and the military in North America and beyond. It has been implemented by numerous teams in the NFL, CFL, NBA and Major League Baseball, as well as NASCAR and many other sports organizations. Among its many accomplishments, MVP introduced the “bystander” approach to the gender violence prevention field; Katz is one of the key architects of this now broadly popular approach.
