Register now for our upcoming community event – Mentoring and Male Allyship: Challenges and Rewards
Male allyship is a topic that has been cropping up in conversations lately, as organisations continue to respond to #MeToo and evolve their approaches to diversity and inclusion. At this session we will be joined by Brad Johnson and David Smith, authors of Athena Rising: How and Why Men Should Mentor Women, for a lively discussion of allyship and mentorship. We will explore the barriers women face in securing mentorships, the challenges associated with male-female mentoring relationships, and the personal and organisational rewards of successful mentoring relationships.
This community is intended for senior practitioners with responsibility for the advancement of the D&I and Wellbeing agendas within their organisation who are keen to share, discuss and compare their own challenges and successes with their peers.
The community meets throughout the year to address topical issues and stays connected via a WhatsApp group, regular updates, and networking. Members of the community can stay informed with access to our webpage of curated content.
We look forward to having you join us in October.
