New E-learning Course: How to be a male ally for gender equality
The evidence is clear: Companies with a higher representation of women in the workforce have higher annual returns, greater share prices, and better acquisition and retention. Yet women remain underrepresented in all levels of the organization.
Men* have a critical role in fighting gender bias and giving women a seat at the table, and they have much to gain themselves from advancing equal rights in the workplace.
Developed by gender equality experts with the male leader in mind, this UN Global Compact Academy e-learning course will help you understand why and how you can be a male ally for gender equality. Access the new UN Global Compact e-learning course here.
