Discussions about gender bias often leave men out of the conversation; the subject typically places the burden of change on women and the blame on men. However, achieving gender equality requires everyone’s commitment. Men are typically well-intentioned: 80% believe it’s important to fix gender issues, but only 10% of men realize it’s present in their workplace. In order to bridge this gap, male employees can use this workshop to join the conversation and learn how to be an ally to and advocate for their female colleagues. The objective of the Male Allies workshop is to strengthen men’s understanding of gender bias in the workplace, enhance their ability to make positive change, and provide a safe forum in which men can communicate openly about sensitive issues.
Please note: This workshop is intended for male employees but all are welcome.
