    Icon Agency partners with The Man Cave charity

    The Man Cave, a preventative mental health and emotional intelligence charity, has entered into a long-term partnership with Icon Agency’s social and behaviour change division, The Change Collective.

    Now in its tenth year, The Man Cave is a national youth charity that works with young men to facilitate safe-space discussions masculinity’s unique challenges and opportunities today.

    The partnership will see Icon and The Man Cave sharing resources and insights to deliver behaviour change programs for state and federal government departments. This includes a strategic comms program focused on youth radicalisation, as well as working with not for profits and consumer brands to help address problematic gender stereotypes.

    Head of Change Collective, Mat Crompton, said, “The Man Cave has unique insights into the behaviours and nuanced experiences of young men in Australia, a typically hard-to-reach audience.”

    The Man Cave’s chief executive officer, Hunter Johnson, added: “Culturally, we are at an inflection point for masculinity, which I think is very exciting.

    “The question is, what next? What behaviours do men need to let go of? What behaviours and attitudes do they want to evolve into – both for their betterment and for the betterment of the communities around them.”

    Last month, Innocean‘s gender equality movement, F*ck The Cupcakes (FTC), announced it was launching an all-year-round program called Yeah the Pies, aiming to promote productive conversations between men on gender equality.

    Its inaugural event takes place this Thursday 11 April, in a drive via Paramount, Infinity Bakery, and Bloke Coaching, that invites men from Australian adland for an afternoon of cooking, conversations, and change – all while baking pies. 

    Commenting on the initiative, FTC founder and Innocean Australia CEO, Jasmin Bedir, said: “We’ve struck a chord with our sentiment that International Women’s Day is meaningless if women continue just to talk to other women.

    “But it is incredibly difficult to get men at scale engaged in the topic of gender equality, which was confirmed by the Gender Pay Gap data.”
