This Month's Content Theme

July’s theme is “Actions Women Can Take." To kick things off, we released a new tool, Actions Women Can Take to Support Men's Engagement, which includes 10 tips on how women can encourage and cultivate men’s work to address inequality.
Here are a couple examples of those actions:
  • Be the change you want to see—make sure that you are role modeling the inclusive leadership you want to see from men, and don’t forget that working with men on these issues creates learning opportunities for you as well.
  • Challenge your assumptions about men’s intentions, ability, and willingness (or lack of) to take an active role in creating gender equity.
  • Intentionally invite men to join workplace initiatives focused on equity and inclusion.
  • Listen to men of color’s experiences—men of color can be strong allies in creating inclusion, which cannot exist without engaging people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Interested in writing on this topic? Here are a couple questions to get you thinking:
  • Women supporting men supporting women? How does that even work?
  • Men—how have women been allies to you in addressing your own biases and assumptions?
  • Men—were you mentored by a woman? Did that shape your understanding of gender equality in conscious/unconscious ways?
  • Men—have you taken part in workplace initiatives (like ERGs) focused on equity and inclusion and comprised of mostly women?
  • Women—when did you have to challenge your own assumptions about men?
  • Women—how do you recognize difference within men?
  • Women—have you invited a man to take part in a majority-women ERG? What was that like?
  • Women—what’s helped you partner with men in confronting inequality?
