A question I’m frequently asked when talking about gender balance is, what about the men? Well, we need the men! Gender equality is not just for women. It’s for everyone. Realistically, in the world of work we need men to be engaged, too, to make the changes required. Gender balance is about working together and using all the talents.
Here’s an interesting video from Michael Kimmel, lecturer in sociology and author of Angry White Men. In an entertaining and engaging way he tells it like it is, and why men need to be engaged and welcomed in this debate.
