Manning Up: Including Men to Accelerate Gender Equality

New York, NY • April 20, 2017

We must engage men - who still wield so much power - thus need to be invested in equality. Our expert & diverse panel will show us how. This is an inclusive event - MEN WELCOME!

Thursday, April 20, 2017 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT

Shearman & Sterling LLP
599 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY 10022

Get Directions

Many of us ask: "How do we include men in the conversation?" or "How do I get my senior leadership team invested and on the same page as us?" or even "My partner is supportive, but he doesn't quite get it." The mission of closing the gender achievement gap is not just women's work - it's everyone's duty

Men still wield so much of the power: 80% of government; 80% of corporate boards; 96% of Fortune 500 CEOs. Equipping everyone with the know-how to perpetuate equality and disrupt the patriarchal stronghold is the next step in advancing gender equity. Men need to be the proud bearers of that torch alongside every woman, but often do not understand the current landscape, or are at a loss of how to get involved.

Expert Moderator Jeffery Tobias Halter (President, YWomen & Gender Strategist), will lead our amazing panel including: 

  • Rafael L. Espinal (NYC Council Member) 
  • Donna Parisi (Partner, Shearman & Sterling)
  • Wade Davis II (former NFL player, Activist & Author)
  • Julia Taylor Kennedy (Senior VP, Centre for Talent Innovation)

This is an inclusive conversation. ALL are welcome!
