Presented by Athena’s Male Allyship Committee.

Allyship is directly linked to business outcomes that include innovation, productivity, profitability, and customer satisfaction. It helps alleviate feelings of burnout and fatigue and reduces employee turnover. However, being an ally is by no means easy. Would-be male allies may struggle to identify subtle forms of sexism or exclusion at work and fear backlash when they speak out. Research suggests that men may be unsure of how to be an ally and struggle to navigate power dynamics at work.

Join us virtually on 9.26 @ 12 pm as we showcase two former naval officers, acclaimed authors, and diversity experts to introduce the business case for deliberate cross-gender partnership in the workplace. Dr. Brad Johnson, Professor at The U.S.Naval Academy, and Dr. David Smith, Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins University will cover the elements of interpersonal allyship, systemic allyship, including disruption of bias, sexism, and harassment in real-time, and out-loud sponsorship.

About our Speakers

Gender-in-the-workplace experts David G. Smith, PhD and W. Brad Johnson, PhD show why and how men have a crucial role to play in promoting gender equality at work. Research shows that when men are deliberately engaged in gender-inclusion programs, 96 percent of women in those organizations perceive real progress in gender equality, compared with only 30 percent of women in organizations without strong male engagement. Smith, a sociologist, and Johnson, a clinical psychologist, are former naval officers with a mission to help men become more effective allies with women and more inclusive leaders in the workplace. Using evidence-based best practices from their books Athena Rising and Good Guys they show men how to partner with their female colleagues to advance women's leadership and equality by breaking ingrained gender stereotypes, overcoming unconscious biases, developing and supporting the talented women around them, and creating productive and respectful working relationships with women.
