What Is Male Allyship?
Male allyship is active promotion of gender equality and equity in men’s personal lives and in the workplace through supportive and collaborative relationships and public acts of sponsorship and advocacy intended to drive systemic improvements to the organizational culture. (Harvard Business Review).
Male allyship is a cultural mindshift. It is not an event or an experience, but a practice of increasing self awareness, improving gender intelligence, and advocating for women (Forte).
Male allyship also expands beyond women and workplace to include people with gender expansive identities and to consider intersectionalities with other marginalized identities, especially race and ethnicity; and goes beyond the workplace and can be practiced in the home, in family dynamics, and in community and broader cultural context (EmpowR Transformation).

The cohort is experienced in three sections for a total of six 2-hour Zooms. Live attendance of the first Zoom on January 31 is mandatory so the cohort can set the container together and we appreciate your understanding. As community building and shared learning with each other is the premise of the cohort, live attendance is inherent for participation. However, we understand conflicts arise and ask for you to communicate any conflicts ahead of time so we can make plans to record parts of sessions that do not break confidentiality and that are not conducted in break out groups.
Resources will be emailed prior to each section for review. Please plan for 1/2 hour of review time prior to each section. There is one week off between sections.
