It provides editable templates including a Call for Submissions, event introduction, press release, and feedback forms for audience members and presenters.
The Guide builds upon research and best practices from areas including gender-transformative public health programming; intersectional research on men and masculinities; personal storytelling; social and behavior change communication; entertainment-education; movement-building; and program design and evaluation.
The MSP License is a legal document that lets groups use the MSP name and logo, join the MSP network, connect with other MSP groups, and share their work on the MSP website and other social media. It includes guidelines on ethics, legality and safety, and a Presenter Release form - a legal document for MSP presenters that addresses media permission as well as liability issues that can arise when men publicly share personal stories on crime and other sensitive topics.
