Manning Up: Including Men to Accelerate Gender Equality

We must engage men – who still wield so much power – thus need to be invested in equality.

Many of us ask: “How do we include men in the conversation?” or “How do I get my senior leadership team invested and on the same page as us?” or even “My partner is supportive, but he doesn’t quite get it.” The mission of closing the gender achievement gap is not just women’s work – it’s everyone’s duty.

Ellevate LogoMen still wield so much of the power: 80% of government; 80% of corporate boards; 96% of Fortune 500 CEOs. Equipping everyone with the know-how to perpetuate equality and disrupt the patriarchal stronghold is the next step in advancing gender equity. Men need to be the proud bearers of that torch alongside every woman, but often do not understand the current landscape, or are at a loss of how to get involved.

Expert Moderator Jeffery Tobias Halter (President, YWomen & Gender Strategist), will lead our amazing panel including:

  • Rafael L. Espinal (NYC Council Member)
  • Donna Parisi (Partner, Shearman & Sterling)
  • Wade Davis II (former NFL player, Activist & Author)
  • Julia Taylor Kennedy (Senior VP, Centre for Talent Innovation)

If weren’t able to attend the April 20th event in New York City, you can watch the video of this dynamic keynote and panel discussion on how to include men in the conversation about gender equality. The men in our lives believe in equality, but do they know how to fight for it? How to strategically implement it?
