A note from Ray Arata

IMG_9595.jpg

When I started this conference, it was with the notion of drawing a line in the sand - and inviting the better nature of male leaders to come forward. I talk often about the power of combining the head and the heart because I think that is what it will take for us to bring our whole selves to our workplace. 

This year we grew in both quantity and quality. That’s due to your involvement. People came out because for one day, on this stage, they got to see C-Level diversity and inclusion leaders from the most respected and influential companies and organizations in the world speak to a room full of men about our responsibility and our privilege to be part of building a better world for both women AND men. 

As leaders in this movement I am honored and privileged to know you. 

Thank you for your involvement as sponsors, speakers, panelists, partners and most of all… as allies.

In terms of the Better Man Conference being a movement, I think its the only organization and conference that I know of that engages men and gets them excited about what has been traditionally referred to as a woman’s issue or a feminist issue.
