Get Started:


More and more organizations understand that the gender equity conversation must include men. What is less clear, however, is what this involves. What are gender supportive behaviors or language? How can you influence an entire organizational culture? Who is responsible for “women’s issues” at work? Forté has two unique offerings to answer these questions and many more.

Corporate Program

Creating a male ally group at work can be challenging. Forté’s Corporate Program provides organizations with the tools necessary to launch a successful Male Ally Initiative—curriculum, consulting, and community. The nine-module curriculum comes complete with customizable PowerPoint decks, lesson plans, and facilitator guides. Consulting includes hours with Forté and outside experts. Our best practices community allows access to other organizations who are implementing similar programs.

Corporate Toolkit

This toolkit will help you understand what it means to be a male ally at work, why companies start male ally groups, and how they go about it. It walks you through the key elements to consider in launching your male ally group, provides a roadmap to get you started, and shares male corporate ally models at every stage of development.

A new version of our Corporate Toolkit and curriculum will be available on February 12, 2020.
