Gender Equity Is Everyone's Business
Today, women are underrepresented at every level of business leadership. To achieve gender equity, we need everyone — including male allies — to understand why it matters and how to get involved.
What does it mean to be a male ally? There’s no checklist, because allyship is an ongoing journey. A male ally actively supports gender equity at work and in life. He recognizes the challenges and biases that women continue to face, and takes intentional steps to build an environment where everyone has opportunities to succeed and advance.
Male allies who champion gender equity 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.
