Delhi Declaration and Call to Action

A milestone set of commitments for MenEngage Alliance members, partners and the broader field of work with men and boys for gender equality.

More than 1,200 people gathered in Delhi, India, in 2014 for the largest gathering to date of MenEngage Alliance. The 2nd MenEngage Global Symposium proved to be a milestone for our networks. It helped set a benchmark and ways forward for gender-transformative work with boys and men.

The symposium culminated in the Delhi Declaration and Call to Action. It is a foundation of many of the values and principles that are considered vital to initiatives to engage men and boys in gender equality, LGBTQI rights, and social justice for all.
