Many large companies are taking steps to actively engage men as allies to create meritocracy in the workplace. Please join us for a discussion of the Catalyst research highlights and learn how these exciting new findings can be applied wherever we work. Hear a panel of male executives from leading companies discuss the research and how they are addressing issues of gender EQUITY within their organizations.
