Catalysts of Change: Inclusion of Men in Gender-Parity
Research proves that women’s issues, specifically workplace acceptance and leadership growth, can advance at a faster rate with men advocating and driving organizational change. But overcoming the perception of men in solidarity with women’s issues - the perception by women of men being an outsider and the perception by men of other men supporting women - is the obstacle. This workshop prepares and activates men to own the responsibility that they have a relevant, important and achievable position, while connecting women to resources. By providing them the tools and in-context discussions necessary to advance women towards gender equity, these allies will have internal motivation increased and their own acceptance within the women’s movement.
