Award for +M research

Congratulations to Orygen researcher Michael Wilson and co-authors Dr Ray Swann, Headmaster Ross Featherston and Kate Casey who have won the prestigious Ilona Kickbusch award for their paper on positive masculinity.

The Ilona Kickbusch Award for Excellence in Early Career Research Publication in Health Promotion is an annual award for best-published manuscript in Health Promotion International by an early career researcher. 

The paper explores the need to move away from traditional masculine norms (defined by stoicism, emotional restrictiveness and avoidance of vulnerability) as the only archetype of masculinity available to boys and young men.
