Get Started:


You are interested in starting a male ally group on campus but you need more information before moving forward. You want to better understand issues to consider, such as how to actively engage men, what activities are successful, and how to effectively work with the Women in Business (WIB) club on your campus. You are curious about the experience of your peers at other business schools who have walked this road. You want to learn about best practices and, just as importantly, stumbling blocks.

We’ve spoken with leaders of the pioneering business school male ally groups across the country, as well as their Women in Business (WIB) leadership peers. Forté’s Men as Allies Online Toolkit distills their wisdom to provide you with a rich source of information that supports you on your journey.
