A new Catalyst report, Interrupting Sexism at Work: What Drives Men to Respond Directly or Do Nothing?, examines what influences men’s willingness and ability to interrupt sexist behaviour at work. Catalyst surveyed 1,500 men working in Canada and found that less than half of respondents said they would feel comfortable challenging sexist behavior if they witnessed it at work. One in five said they would do nothing. One of our key findings: A combative culture can deter men from speaking up. Below are the signs of a combative culture and what steps leaders can take to build more inclusive workplaces.
This project has been funded by Women and Gender Equality Canada.
