Minister for Equity, Social Justice, and Empowerment Joachim Henry has challenged Caribbean men to live up to their full potential in an address to the inaugural International Regional Men’s Day Conference.

Henry led Saint Lucia’s delegation and was the keynote speaker at the event in Grenada from November 15 – 19, 2023.

He told his audience that it was not a curse that, statically, men died before their spouses.

The Castries South East MP said this should galvanize men in seeing themselves as the bridge in helping to set their children and families on an economically successful path towards creating generational wealth, mitigating the effects of colonization and slavery.

Minister Henry also appealed to men to no longer remain passive observers within the family and society.

He urged them to rise to the occasion instead, as the world needed leaders of good faith and character now more than ever.

Henry called upon men in attendance at the inaugural regional conference to work side by side with their female counterparts, helping to stem the tide and root out the prevailing attitude of juvenile delinquency and outright disregard for authority plaguing Caribbean societies.
