Status M is a non-governmental and non-profit organization based in Croatia and working in the South-East European region. We were established in 2010 and consist of a team of 4 employees who can communicate in English and Croatian. We are member of the MenEngage Global Alliance and the Steering Committee, MenCare, CARE International Balkans (Young Men Initiative), COPE (Children of Prisoners Europe) and the Croatian Youth Network.
The mission of our organization is to raise awareness and to question and deconstruct prevailing social norms and stereotypes on gender. Furthermore, we are strengthening and encouraging boys, men and marginalized members of society to become agents of change for social justice and gender equality.
Our strategic approach is based on non-formal education, grassroots activism, campaigning and advocating for parental leave. We are informing the public, strengthening experts and advocating for the improvement of public policies and practice. We want to involve young people in our approach and also raise awareness about the importance of including men in the processes of achieving gender equality.
