Male allies are men who associate with, cooperate with, and support women. A 2016 Fairygodboss and Artemis survey highlighted ways in which men have been allies to advancing women’s inclusion at work including 53% who said they privately advocated for equality, inclusion, and diversity and 41% who publicly advocated for equality, inclusion and diversity. Many others wanted to but didn’t know how to help…and this goes for men and women. Join us to hear from two male allies who have empowered and advocated for women right here in our own Berks Women2Women base.
