My name is Duane de Four and I’m an educator, media critic and activist. My specialties include:
- Gender violence prevention
- Teaching bystander intervention
- Sexual health education
- Redefining masculinity and outreach to male groups
- Diversity education
I’ve been an educator for close to twenty years now, and in that time I’ve had the privilege of facilitating thousands of trainings in a wide variety of settings, including:
- NFL, NBA, NHL and NASCAR
- The U.S. Marine Corps, Army, Air Force and Air National Guard
- Batterer intervention programs
- Detention, revocation and treatment centers
- Middle and high schools
In 2011 I wrapped up a project that I’m pretty proud of. I was one of only six Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) selected to train Air Force Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) to deliver a groundbreaking Bystander Intervention curriculum. The freshly-trained SARCs were then scheduled to conduct their own series of trainings reaching over 600,000 Air Force personnel serving around the world! You can read more about this and my other work on my Biography page.
In addition to my work as a speaker and educator, I’m the creator of HowManly.com, a blog about masculinity in media and culture.
