What you will learn:
Men of all backgrounds can be outstanding leaders of positive workplaces when we tap into men’s strengths and natural abilities to be allies. Many companies are looking at establishing “male allies” or “manbassador” programs to engage men in diversity initiatives.
Rachana Bhide’s groundbreaking research, “The Corner of the Court Project,” celebrates positive stories as the foundation for learning. She has collected data and stories of over 75 examples of male allies, through women’s real-life stories across industries such as professional sports (NFL), financial services, education and more.
Through a term called “Unconscious Advocacy” we reflect on the natural ways men can (and do!) act as allies in work and life, and we share specific behaviors that make an impact.
This course meets men where they are, to collaboratively teach and celebrate how ally behaviors can be adopted for practical outcomes. Men (and women!) will walk away with tools to reflect on their ability to be great allies, and behaviors they can carry forward.
