Bringing an interesting topic that is always at the back of our minds and daily working lives; we touch on Male Allyship. We recognise the vital role that men play in championing women’s rights and dismantling systemic barriers to gender equality.


In this panel, let’s delve deeper and through thought-provoking discussions we hope to encourage and advocate the roles of male allies in the workplace:

  • How do we empower and involve men in promoting gender equality in the workplace and beyond.
  • How to become effective allies and drive positive change. 
  • How to advocate for gender equality, challenge harmful stereotypes, and create safe spaces for open dialogue.

Sign up now to learn more about engaging and fostering male allies at work and in the community.
