Description

MENTORING WOMEN
IN THE AGE OF #METOO

(an UPWARD Men program for Male Leaders)


There's a perceived fear in the workplace that advocating for and mentoring women opens men up to charges of sexism and/or harassment.


However, this is NOT the case. We should not be fearful to be champions for women advancement & leadership.

As a male leader, you are invited to learn and share the challenges and the wins of being an advocate & ally for women leaders.


This panel will help navigate:

  • How to mentor women effectively & successfully
  • What the benefits are to supporting women leadership
  • How to provide a nurturing environment that celebrates gender diversity and female leadership.


Date/Time:

THURSDAY
MARCH 26, 2020
6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

UPWARD Men is a program to encourage and support professional women for male leaders. If women are to make significant progress in their careers, the professional relationships and support of men is vital to their advancement. It's crucial that we engage men to promote women in leadership roles as a priority to an organization's operational strategy and executional success.

And, it's time to be a part of the solution to pave the way for ALL current and future women leaders. Including the future leaders directly connected to you -- wives, daughters, nieces, cousins, etc. Together with other men leaders passionate about advocating for women, we have the power for significant change and impact.



UPWARD events are open to our executive-level, male members. If you are currently not an UPWARD member, by registering for this event you are accepting a complimentary UPWARD membership.
