Kent State University to Host M.A.L.E. Initiative Conference on March 8

The second annual M.A.L.E. Initiative Conference will take place on Saturday, March 8.

The second annual M.A.L.E. Initiative Conference will take place on Saturday, March 8. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m., and the program runs through 6 p.m. at the Kent Student Center. The conference will feature Tim Storey, an acclaimed author, speaker and life advisor, and Desmond Howard, an ESPN analyst, Heisman Trophy Winner and Super Bowl XXXI MVP. Several Kent State University faculty and staff will facilitate dynamic conference sessions covering topics such as Media Profiles, Men and Music and Male Leadership Styles. The event is free, but registration is required by March 3. Lunch will be provided.

The theme of this year’s M.A.L.E. Initiative Conference is “Limitless.”  The conference will explore the personal concept of living your life with a full perspective of limitless possibilities beyond average norms; not waiting but recognizing and exploring these possibilities now! The conference also will explore how self-perceptions are connected to action, leadership and engagement.

The M.A.L.E. initiative, Men focusing on Action, Leadership and Engagement, is a program of Kent State’s Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This initiative provides an inclusive venue for men at Kent State, with the goal of having participants learn from working with one another and moving forward, engaging and uplifting society through civic and community service and a productive life after college.

The M.A.L.E. Initiative Conference focuses on networking among successful and professional men from Kent State and surrounding areas. Attendees will learn about being leaders and engaging the community with positive change. Although most of the topics are tailored toward male students, women are welcome to attend.
