YWCA Men's Breakfast Keynote Speaker



Ted Bunch (he/him/his)
Chief Development Officer of A Call to Men

Ted Bunch is an author, educator, activist, and lecturer working to advance gender and racial justice and create a more equitable society. Bunch is Chief Development Officer of A Call to Men and is internationally recognized for his efforts to prevent violence against women while promoting a healthy, respectful manhood. He is a leading voice on issues of manhood, male socialization, promoting healthy manhood/masculinity, preventing violence against all women and girls, diversity, equity and inclusion, and promoting gender and racial equity.

A Call To Men is dedicated to building a community centered around healthy and respectful manhood. This emphasizes valuing and respecting women, girls, and LGBTQIA+ people while respecting and valuing oneself to live authentically. The group works to educate the community about breaking from a heterosexist norm that devalues all those who don’t conform to a gender binary. Men’s Breakfast helps reduce the likelihood of sexual violence by creating a sense of belonging, accountability, and remembrance of how our beliefs, choices, and actions impact one another.

YWCA Kalamazoo invites businesses and organizations to participate as Sponsors for this annual community celebration.
