The burden of driving gender equality in the workplace cannot rest solely on the shoulders of women. Our systems of promotion and advancement are broken - women don’t need “fixing” - our workplace culture does. Men have an important role to play as allies in fixing those systems and there are simple steps men and companies can take to bring everyone along on the path to a more equal future. From equalization of parental leave to equal representation in the boardroom, male allies play an important role. This will be a lively discussion between a male equality champion and a female leader on how the two genders can work together to change our systems and elevate women at work.
