Why start a male ally group?
Besides sheer profitability, [employing female leaders] makes businesses a good place to be...What we hope is that men and women will go to business schools and see women, and that will be something that seems normal.
Gender Equity is Everyone's Business
The conversation on gender equity involves everyone. Change cannot happen if it is only women talking to women about women. Men need to be part of the conversation.
Men who champion gender equity—male allies—help businesses win bigger. You are likely aware of the business case for gender diversity: greater profitability, greater creativity and innovation, less risk — and with each new research study the list of benefits lengthens. From the MBA campus to the corporate arena, Forté’s Men as Allies Initiative provides inspiration and instruction to men engaging in the gender equity conversation.
