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.

Welcome to the MARC Blog

Conversations about gender are frequently one-sided and tend to focus on women’s perspectives. But in order to work more effectively with women to achieve gender equality, men can benefit from an online community that focuses on men’s perspectives where they can consider what gender means in their lives and how to advocate 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 too? What can men to do to change the workplace so that women and men have equal opportunities for advancement? MARC bloggers tackle hot topics like these—and more. But we also want to hear from you about the key issues you’d like us to address. What questions have you been asking yourself? What questions do you wish you could ask your women colleagues—without looking either clueless or sexist?
