Male* Allies in the Workplace Post-#MeToo

One Year into the #metoo movement, how do we build corporate culture that encourages male allyship and sponsorship of women?

 

We know that proactive male sponsorship—identifying and championing talent within their organizations—is key to women’s advancement in the workplace, particularly because men hold most of the seats at the table. However, recent research shows that men may be more reluctant to develop professional relationships with women in the workplace post-#MeToo.

 

So how do we move forward? One year into the #MeToo movement, how do we build corporate culture that encourages male allyship and sponsorship of women?

April 2018 Recap


What does it really mean to “hire the best candidate for the job”? how to build a power-house organization with intentional diversity recruiting.

 

Thank you to our sponsors, our host, and most importantly everyone who participated in and attended our April event. We hope you walked away with actionable steps for bringing greater diversity and inclusion to your organization. If you weren't able to make it, don't worry, you can check out the full recap here and pictures from the evening below!

 



  • "The presentation was full of valuable insights!"


  • "Very strong panel with a diverse set of backgrounds, experience levels, and perspectives."
  • "The event provided some insights that I hadn't heard before when the conversation of diversity and inclusion in the hiring process comes up. For example, Diane mentioning the Rooney Principle is an actionable takeaway that, as a hiring manager, I could begin practicing right away."


  • "I loved how diverse the panel was!"
  • "Straightforward questions, candid and actionable answers and feedback. Great, inspirational speakers."

Ageism, and its effect on women in the workplace


Gender pay equity

 

Changing the Conversation is an event series co-founded by Cynnie King, Rachel Fagnant-Fassler and Maria Simon, and sponsored by CFW Careers in collaboration with our team of committed volunteers and advocates.


Having been committed to advancing women in business since our founding 43 years ago, we find it all the more critically important today to take on continued inequality in pay and representation in the workforce. Changing the Conversation is devoted to Advancing Women in Business through programming that moves from identifying the issues, which have been so well documented, to What can we do about it? both in terms of our own careers and corporate and government policy-making. Our belief is that by advancing women toward corporate leadership, we can help all women across the socioeconomic spectrum.


Mission Statement

The mission of Changing the Conversation is to positively impact gender equality within the business sector, seeking equal representation of women in the workforce and in leadership.


This Mission Is Fueled By

  • An interactive event series connecting women executives to peers to create a network committed to advancing female leadership
  • Advocacy in the private and public sectors for policies that support the prominence and permanence of women in the workforce
  • Professional guidance and career development for women in business, including job placement, transition coaching, and mentoring

  • Have definitely been thinking about that question of how to be a good male ally and use my voice since the event (really since Colby). Most of the time I've come to the conclusion that being there, in the room, is often the best way for me to participate.
