Based on our research and expertise, we know that the majority of those who bully are men. We also know that men are actively discouraged from opening up about their emotions and instead, often respond with aggression.
To tackle this, we are supporting AXE’s mission to show guys there’s no one way to “be a man” and thus quite literally ditch the labels that hold them back. Our partnership of more than a year is focused on giving young guys the tools and resources they need to say a huge, big, fat no to bullying and be comfortable with who they are – without the pressures and limits of traditional masculinity.
We know guys spend a lot of their time online, so we’ve created an easy to use platform for the UK, US and Mexico, housing everything guys need to get rid of limiting labels and reduce bullying. This platform is powered by AXE and its Find Your Magic Initiative, and includes communities, chats and trained mentors.
We’re aiming to help at least 474k people through our partnership with Axe. We’re confident that we will get more young people talking about bullying and the labels that guys suffer under - and this is something we are very proud of.
