  • Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men"

    In 1950, most Americans had completed the transition from adolescence to adulthood by age 21 or so. Today, it's more likely to be by age 30. It's a new stage of development, and Kimmel is our tour guide in this presentation based on his best-selling book, GUYLAND. Based on interviews with more than 400 young people across the country, Kimmel offers a glimpse of why so many guys are adrift through their 20s, and offers a road map towards a more conscious adulthood.

  • "Mars, Venus, or Planet Earth? Women & Men on Campus in a New Millenium"

    We're often told that men and women are so different we might as well come from different planets. In this engaging and entertaining lecture, Michael Kimmel strips away those myths and suggests that women and men aren't so different after all. Surveying the landscape of current controversies about gender, he shows how men and women are transforming our campus and our culture -
    • and why gender equality is actually a good thing for men!

  • "ANGRY WHITE MEN: American Masculinity at the End of an Era"

    Everywhere we turn, there are pockets of rage among American men. Why would middle class white men be so angry? In this lecture drawn from the book ANGRY WHITE MEN, Kimmel will discuss why men seem so angry, and the different groups that organize and express that anger -
    • from men's rights groups, to men who "go postal" in their workplaces, to angry white boys, to the extreme right wing.

  • "ANGRY WHITE MEN: Gender, Race, and Class on the Extreme Right"

    In this multimedia presentation, Kimmel offers a look inside the extreme right wing (neo-Nazis, White Nationalists) in the United States, with a glance also to Scandinavia and Germany. Based on interviews with men in these movements, Kimmel discusses the ways they use gender (masculinity) as a way to frame their political discontent, and express their racist politics. Amply illustrated with materials from these organizations, this lecture is provocative and disturbing.

  • CORPORATE LECTURE: "The Gender Quality Advantage"

    Many corporations are committed to increasing gender equality in the workplace, but most of the time we think that means simply developing better policies for women. Men rarely see themselves as stakeholders in the gender equality discussion. For more than 30 years, Michael Kimmel has been working with corporations, governments, public sector organizations and NGOs, to engage men to support gender equality. Not only because it's the right thing to do (which it is) or even because it's good for business (which it is), but because it's also good for men themselves. Kimmel also offers a broader discussion of Diversity and Inclusion that shows how greater diversity by race, ethnicity, and sexuality, also benefits profitability and return on investment, corporate culture, and everyone's working experience. Kimmel's keynote presentations, based on his acclaimed TED talk, are by turn humorous, engaging, and entirely evidence-based. Kimmel shows that gender equality is not only right and fair, but it's also smart. It's not a zero-sum, but a win-win all around. Large presentations, workshops, corporate consulting, and high-level meetings.
