Join educators and parents from IBSC schools around the globe to examine issues impacting boys today. The four-part series spans six months, with a keynote speaker discussing each timely topic.

Each session in the series includes a 45-minute, prerecorded keynote address followed by an asynchronous conversation with fellow participants and speakers on a discussion board. You have access to this content and conversation for three consecutive days. Comment on the keynote, interact with the speaker, share your own resources that may benefit others, and learn from the information global colleagues and parents contribute.
