The 1900 Building

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.
Breakfast will be provided as well as time for networking after the event.
