Dr. Peter Weller is a Clinical Psychologist whose current work is dedicated to training clinical psychologists and also to engaging men in exploring their concerns and partnering with women to achieve gender equality and social justice. The history of gender conversations in the Caribbean has primarily been one of women talking to women, and when men are involved they often perceive the process as preaching or punishment. Gender is too often understood to be a "woman thing". COURAGE is required to change this conversation. Dr. Weller is the President of The Caribbean Male Action Network - CariMAN.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
