Women Lead Webinar Series

This webinar is free for all Forté members to encourage male allyship.

Engaging Men in the Gender Equity Conversation

Gender equity isn’t just about women. Men must be part of the conversation—and part of the effort to change the status quo. How can we include men in a discussion from which they have traditionally been excluded or stereotypically cast as the “bad guy?”

Forté’s pioneering Men as Allies initiative, launched in 2016, provides toolkits and resources to help top business schools and corporations understand the importance of male allies and take action toward gender equity.

Forté CEO, Elissa Sangster, and VP Programs, Amy Orlov, often speak about the Men as Allies program at corporate events and professional conferences, and in this webinar, they’ll share a special online version of their dynamic presentation. They’ll discuss why it is essential to involve men in the gender equity conversation, outline the benefits of male allyship, and offer examples of gender supportive behaviors and language.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Explore what it means to be a male ally and how male allies in the workplace can influence the gender equity discussion.
  • Learn the top 5 ways in which women can engage men in the gender equity conversation.
  • Find out why companies that champion gender equity become more successful.
