Last week we began sharing a transcript and video of a series entitled, "Allies In Action". This week in part 2, a recent Catalyst study on how to engage men shows 74% of men interviewed having real fears of getting involved in gender equality. In part 2 of "Allies in Action", Rachana Bhide of Bloomberg and Founder of The Corner Of The Court Project cites the top 3 fears from that study and asks corporate male leader allies if they should be taken in to account when recruiting male allies. But first she asks them to comment on their own experience as related to the question, "What are some of the things that men then do as allies to carry forward so it's not a once-and-done?"
This discussion took place at the Better Man Conference 2017 - Engaging Men As Allies where Rachana was joined by John Murphy, Sr. Dir. of Sales Operations at Blue Shield and Co-Founder of the Manning Up for Gender Inclusion Program along with Jim Wunderman, President and CEO of the Bay Area Council, a CEO lead public policy and advocacy organization.
