Phenomena Shaping the Future: Violence Against Women & Girls
Ted Bunch is a father to six wonderful children. He is the Chief Development Officer of A Call to Men, a global organization with a unique and powerful mission: prevent violence against women, in all its forms, by educating and training men and boys to embrace and promote a new definition of manhood – one that is healthy and respectful and venerates rather than violates women.
Before joining A Call to Men, Ted co-created the largest program for domestic violence offenders in America, a program which led to the development best practices for engaging men to end violence against women. He is also the co-author of the LIVERESPECT™ Coaching Healthy & Respectful Manhood Curriculum, designed to prevent violence and bullying in school and sports.
He is an adviser to the National Football League, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League, Major League Soccer and Major League Baseball and has developed and implemented model response programs for police and fire departments, and other first responders dealing with domestic violence.
Ted is also an international lecturer for the U.S. State Department and was appointed by former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, to Unite, an international network of male leaders working to end violence against women.
