Gender equality isn’t just about women; it’s about all of us. But while genuine equity is good for women and men, men are often absent from these conversations. This episode focuses on men’s engagement in gender equality, bringing you the highlights from an April 2021 Women’s Leadership Forum exploring this issue. Dr. Susan Madsen, Founding Director of the Utah Women & Leadership Project, is joined by David Smith, Associate Professor of Sociology in the College of Leadership and Ethics at the U.S. Naval War College, and W. Brad Johnson, Professor of Psychology in the Department of Leadership, Ethics and Law at the United States Naval Academy.
Drs. Smith and Johnson, authors of the Harvard Business Review books Athena Rising and Good Guys, provide the “how to” for men, women, and organizational leaders who want to be intentional, inclusive, and excellent allies, leveraging mentorship, sponsorship, and workplace partnership to create a more diverse workforce.
