Please join for an exciting session at the WFRN conference which highlights a game-changing approach to combating gender inequality in the workplace.

Male Allies Supporting Gender Equality at the Workplace and Beyond ---- Friday June 22nd, 10:15 – 11:45 in room Statler B

Through research, discussion with a live-panel of male ally leaders, and an interactive conversation with the audience, we will explore how male allies represent a powerful lever of change for realizing gender equality both at work and at home. 

  • How to effectively engage men in gender equality work 
  • What male allies, and male ally groups, do 
  • Male allies accelerating gender diversity progress in academia 
  • How academic research can illuminate the impact of male allies in driving change

Join for what promises to be a lively, provocative and informative session.

In the words of male allies from top business schools: 

I had a single parent mother who raised me and I heard about the challenges she faced at work. I had two females working for me and I wanted to understand how to be a better facilitator for their growth to help them navigate their careers.


I think the patriarchy hurts men almost as badly as it hurts women. I think it is everyone’s problem. I want to be part of the solution. 


The male ally experience moved me from awareness to behavioral changes.


A middle manager can have more impact than a CEO [on gender diversity]. The best way to make a difference is in the daily interactions at work. You can influence and change office dynamics real-time.
