About the MARC Blog

The MARC Blog features commentary by and for men who want to make a difference. Conversations about gender tend to be one-sided and focus on women’s perspectives

But men who join our community want to know: what does it mean to be a man at work and in society? In what ways does workplace culture affect men's and women's careers? What can men to do to support change that benefits all?

MARC bloggers tackle topics like these—and more. But we also want to hear from you about the key issues you’d like us to address. Contact us if you have questions or if you are interested in writing for MARC.

Hey all,
I have spent over 20 years in Information Technology and CyberSecurity and have been through the gamut of mistreatment by male colleagues. There are two things that happen on a consistent basis.

Hi Mark Wolka ‍,

Thanks so much for the kind words and support! My company already has a policy in place for both primary and secondary caregiver leave so I did not have to negotiate the policy. That said, in order to be qualified for primary caregiver leave, I had to complete documentation indicating as such and the reasons why. With that said, I applaud you f...
