For far too long, conversations about gender have been one-sided—primarily reflecting the perspectives of women. To be full partners with women in achieving gender equality, men need a space to consider what gender means in their own lives and the role they can play as advocates for change at work and beyond. This is what the MARC Blog is all about. What does it mean to be a man at work and in society? Does male privilege hurt men? What can men to do to change the workplace so that men and women have equal opportunities for advancement? MARC Bloggers will be taking on these key issues.

Who are the MARC bloggers? They include Amitabh KumarBill ProudmanGraeme RussellLars Einar EngströmMartin DavidsonMichael KimmelMichael Welp, and Noah Prince, with occasional contributions by Frank McCloskey and an array of guest writers.

When I heard about the deaths of police officers at the hands of a sniper, my first reaction was "I hope the shooter wasn't African American", hoping (naively, unrealistically) that nothing would happen to further the race gap in the U.S. The acts of individual whites are more likely to seen as just that, individual acts. History has proven; violence...
Great post sir, thank you. I agree with your colleague Bill Page's frame about real people and white guys. One of the cultural attributes of U.S. white male culture I notice working with men in business is our preference for certainty and a low tolerance for ambiguity. Hence, we have a predilection for reductionism even when it doesn't apply. Lif...
Broadly speaking, yes.

I think there are a couple ways to look at these results, as the WaPo points out. The researchers' conclusion is that beauty is "something you do," rather than "something you are." An economist might say being well-groomed is a sign" you’re aware of social cues and that you care about how other people perceive you." Another view...
