Event description

Description

What is the Better Man Conference?

The 2019 Better Man Conference is an experiential day guiding attendees through the Allies Journey, meeting individuals where they are in their process. Lightning talks, keynote speeches, and intentional networking will engage attendees and their specific experiences in promoting healthy masculinity, diversity, and inclusion. By the end of the day, participants will be equipped to get in the game.

Why Men?

Men are often not comfortable participating in diversity events because they are unsure of their role or concerned of saying something wrong. BMC is a starting place for men without shame or blame to:​

  • Understand healthy masculinity traits for inclusive leadership

  • Gain language and context to engage in discussions

  • Leverage power and position to elevate women and minorities


Who should attend?

Our content will focus on the engagement of men and the unique male perspective in inclusion and hierarchy. However, individuals who do not identify as males are invited to gain perspective on engaging men as allies.

  • Executives, Leaders, Emerging Leaders, Change Makers

  • Human Resources, Diversity Staff and Council Leaders

  • Learners and Leaders seeking workforce inclusion
