Pt. 2 Developing Influence Partners For Gender Equality & Partnership

In last week's Gender Leadership Group video blog, pioneer and leader in the field of Diversity and Inclusion, Chuck Shelton shared A Few Keys To Developing Influence Partners which include:

-I will pursue personal accountability to lead as a male ally to women.
-I will build relationships with trust and reciprocity with women at work.
-I will influence other men as peers and as a male ally to women.

This week when referring to the first key, personal accountability of men as allies to women, he describes three categories of male leader or manager behavior.   Those committed to advancing gender equality and gender partnership within the organization can look for these traits in leaders and managers when ascertaining how to develop plans to engage those men in becoming influence partners to support the cause.

The three categories of behavior are lagging, learning and leading.  Watch the video below to learn about these behaviors and more.
