The support and advocacy of men is a critical but often untapped resource in diversity and inclusion work. Because the majority of senior leaders in organisations are men, they are in the best position to influence change and support the creation of inclusive company cultures. Research by Boston Consulting Group shows that among companies where men are actively involved in gender diversity, 96 % report progress – compared to only 30% if men are not involved. This lively interactive discussion will cover the following:
- How can we engage and develop more male champions of inclusion?
- How can we ensure that men and women work together as allies in changing organisational norms and cultures?
- What actions and behaviours are necessary and impactful?
- How are companies and individuals benefitting from successful cross-gender partnership?
Catalyst facilitators will share insights from the Catalyst research on Engaging Men in Gender Initiatives as well as lessons learned from the MARC (Men Advocating Real Change) initiative and our MARC Leaders programmes. Participants will be encouraged to share success stories, practices and challenges.
We invite business leaders, HR professionals, D&I professionals, and champions of inclusion to join the dialogue. Female participants are asked to bring a male colleague. Registration is complimentary for Catalyst Supporters. Space is limited, so early registration is recommended.
We’d like to thank our host, VERTEX for their generous support of this event.
Space is limited so early registration is highly recommended.
