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.
