Men as Allies

Lisa Levey has been a national advocate for the importance of men in the gender dialogue.  Involving more men – and engaging them more deeply – is the key to supercharging gender diversity efforts.  And the benefits go far beyond the workplace as we examine the limitations of gender norms in our lives.

Key Principles of Gender Balance

  • Gender balance is the economically smart thing to do and the right thing to do.
  • Women and men are stronger together – in organizations, in communities, in families.
  • Gender balance is about men and women. Each must play a role.
  • Gender balance requires challenging fundamental assumptions and making adaptations in attitudes and behaviors, structures and practices.
