Hello all, this year ITM Group of Institutions will be celebrating International Men's Day on November 19, 2018 (Monday).

Most people don't even know that there is, in fact, an internationally recognized day for Men... And most people laugh at the idea of celebrating it. "isn't every day Men's Day?" is the common refrain.

We think that Men should be acknowledged, recognized and celebrated... Not just for their achievements and conquests, but for the roles they play in our society.

Our theme this year is:
"Hero ka Hero"
- celebrating positive male role models

Especially in light of the wave of #metoo allegations, and the spotlight that's been aimed at male behaviour, we must take the time to acknowledge that there are Men who have been raised well, who treat everyone as equals and make us proud through how they live their lives.

So let's "remember the names of our fathers" and cherish the relationships we have with the men in our lives and our communities and celebrate International Men's Day!
