involved with workshops that address issues unique to men, encouraging more men to
seek support, learn better communication skills, and view empathy, compassion and

vulnerability as strength rather than weakness. In doing so, Matt hopes to encourage
change in the way we view masculinity, and to empower men to be more positive and

partners, family, mates, and to be positive role models for future generations of men.
