MARC Leaders is an immersive and interactive 1.5-day cross-company workshop for directors through senior executives that inspires participants to stand up for gender equity.
Guided by a skilled cross-gender facilitator pair, participants will:
Develop a more visceral understanding of:
- How gender dynamics, roles, norms, and social conditioning link to the workplace and leadership.
- How systemic advantages and disadvantages, privilege, and bias impact employees.
- How the experience of “otherness” affects relationship building and bridging divides.
- What it means to recognize intersectional and multidimensional identities.
- Why we need male champions and advocates.
- What effective gender partnership looks like and why is it important.
Practice skills to:
- Recognize, talk about, and address bias and privilege with empathy and understanding.
- Engage in courageous dialogue and perspective sharing to build connections.
- Proactively challenge bias, stereotypes and exclusionary behaviors in a range of workplace settings and processes.
- Communicate and lead more inclusively.
- Partner across difference.
- Achieving concrete, personal goals for continued learning and leadership on gender equity.
- Building alliances and mutual support.
- Holding themselves and other leaders accountable.
