Women are at a disadvantage in the workplace. Women deal with unequal pay, sexual harassment, lack of credit for their contributions, and more. And while many organizations say they are working to address gender equity, too many gender initiatives focus on how women should act and respond, largely leaving men out of the equation. This is a mistake.

In this live, interactive HBR webinar, gender equity experts David G. Smith and W. Brad Johnson will show how men must engage to promote greater gender equity at work.

Evidence shows that when men are deliberately engaged in gender inclusion programs, 96% of organizations see real progress in gender equality, compared with only 30% of organizations when men are not engaged.

During this webinar Smith and Johnson will discuss:

·       Data on why it is so important that men be engaged in gender equity efforts

·       How men can become better allies to women

·       Challenges facing male allies—and how to overcome them

Smith and Johnson will share firsthand accounts from both men and women, as well as tangible recommendations and tips for getting started. They will show how men can partner with female colleagues to advance women's leadership by breaking gender stereotypes, overcoming unconscious biases, developing talented women around them, and creating more productive work environments.

If your organization believes in the idea of gender equality and wants insights on how to make even greater progress—particularly by engaging men—join Smith, Johnson, and HBR on July 28.
