Jake Stika: Redefining What It Means to Be a Man

“Man up,” “be a man,” and “don’t be a girl” are phrases that boys often hear while growing up. They send the message that men should always project toughness, stoicism, and independence. Jake Stika believes that we need to teach boys to express vulnerability, ask for help, and show compassion and that doing so will benefit everyone in our society. Stika is the Executive Director of Next Gen Men and he spoke at The Walrus Talks: Boundaries in 2019.
