Turning Mythical Knights into Authentic Allies
Male Allies aren’t knights in shining armor but men who genuinely want to be part of the solution: a bias-free business culture that values myriad leadership styles and diverse approaches to problem solving. Launched by Forté in 2016 to help men support their female colleagues, Men as Allies is a pioneering program complete with toolkit, website and resources. This panel is for those seeking a better understanding of the gender equity goal and its benefits for the classroom and work.
