About The Event

You're invited to a Public Program of the Television Academy Foundation.

Join us for an enlightening panel discussion on the topic of Healthy Masculinity in Television, as panelists explore how television programming has evolved to challenge traditional notions of masculinity and promote positive representations on screen.

Our panel will share personal anecdotes, the impact of complex characters, compelling storylines, and diverse perspectives on viewers' perceptions of masculinity.

From breaking down stereotypes to exploring emotional vulnerability, the discussion will look at the pivotal role television has played in redefining and reimagining healthy masculinity, representation, and the exploration of identity, relationships, mental well-being, and personal growth on television.

Whether you are a television enthusiast, an educator of media studies, or simply curious about the evolving portrayals of masculinity in the entertainment industry, this panel will celebrate the power of television to shape healthy masculinity and how that is impacting inclusive storytelling.

We look forward to seeing you!
