Write for MARC

What's your story? Each month we feature voices of MARC members on a range of topics and we want to hear from you. MARC bloggers have their work showcased across MARC social media channels and in the weekly MARC newsletter. Popular topics include experiences and stories about:
 
  • Experiences and struggles as a working dad
  • Engaging with colleagues on diversity
  • Being "out" in the workplace
  • Competition among male colleagues at work
  • Confronting sexism in the workplace
Please email MARC@catalyst.org with your submissions and ideas. Anonymous written submissions will be accepted. If you would like to write for MARC, but aren't sure what to write about, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We provide our bloggers with regularly updated themes and questions to spark their creativity. 

We look forward to hearing from you and posting your stories on MARC!

This Month's Content Theme

Throughout May, the MARC community will focus on the theme of "Having Difficult Conversations." Join us as we discuss the best ways to initiate, navigate, and follow through on difficult conversations, particularly around gender partnership.

Interested in writing on this topic? Here are a couple questions to get you thinking:
 
  • What constitutes a difficult conversation?
  • Why do we so often avoid difficult conversations?
  • How can difficult conversations strengthen a partnership?
  • What are some examples of difficult conversations you’ve had, that either ended well or not at all, and what lessons did you learn that you can share?
  • How, when, and where do we initiate difficult conversations to maximize success?
  • How do we get the right people involved to get the most out of the conversation?
  • What topics are hardest to talk about in your experience? What makes them more approachable?
  • How do we follow through on difficult conversations? What needs to happen after?
  • What can organizations do to encourage productive difficult conversations?
