Why so many men?

We founded this group to consciously leverage our unearned privilege to end xenophobia and build partnership across all intersections.

Because we're men, we can walk into rooms full of male leaders and use similarity bias to our advantage. We can challenge men, we can empathize, we can mirror each other's blind spots, we can bring powerful new voices and data to each other's consciousness. We can open doors and bring more diversity into "the room where it happens."

We take intersectionality seriously and have established professional advisory relationships with organizations and consultants from many backgrounds to help us see our blind spots and learn about our impact, biases and opportunities to help or stay silent.

In short... because other men will listen to us. This is what Male Allies can do.
