Presenters included:

  • Kris Macomber, PhD, Sociology Faculty for Meredith College, to discuss how her research findings point to an increasing emphasis on men’s accountability.
  • Ben Atherton Zeman, Artistic Director for Voices of Men, to discuss some strategies and tools for incorporating accountability into organizational practices.
