Please join community and business leaders as Bank of America and Catalyst present a complimentary senior executive discussion on engaging men to become advocates for inclusion.
Men are an often untapped, yet critical, resource in diversity and inclusion efforts. In the past, initiatives have focused on women or minorities. Men haven’t always been central to the conversation—yet men are 85% of all leadership in Fortune 500 companies.
Catalyst’s Engaging Men in Gender Initiatives research has uncovered the most effective ways for men to engage in creating an inclusive workplace, while helping their companies achieve the benefits—recruiting and promoting talent, mirroring communities and clients, increasing innovation and employee engagement, and driving business results.
