“Attending a MARC Leaders Workshop affects leaders in different ways. For me, it was transformational. I always thought I was rather enlightened in my attitudes towards gender equity. Through MARC, I realized [… I] was only scratching the surface. I wasn’t getting it wrong; I just wasn’t getting it all. It is not enough just to say ‘I am for gender equity.’ To be an effective leader of a diverse workforce, I must make a deliberate, continuous effort to deeply understand the dynamics involved, engage in dialogue, and then act.”

Five Key Factors for Successful DEI Implementation
MARC programming inspires and empowers organizations—no matter where they are on their journey—to achieve DEI transformation. Through our research and trainings, we have identified these key factors to ensure success.
Assess Your Workplace Needs
Know your starting point, identify your target audience, and ensure a strong (but not exclusive) representation of men. There’s no wrong place to start MARC.
Adopt a Shared Language
Establish a common framework and vocabulary in order to learn to talk with one another—not at or past
Foster Psychological Safety
Create an environment of psychological safety that enables participants to share openly and honestly and build
Lead by Example
Lead by example, set the tone, and fulfill your promises during your DEI journey.
Move From Learning to Action
Translate learning into commitment. Translate commitment into practice. These fundamental factors lead to success.
