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.

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?
