Birds of a Feather
TimeWednesday, November 14th12:15pm - 1:15pm
DescriptionIn a male-dominated field such as HPC, male allies are particularly vital to ensure that women advance equitably in their careers. Research shows that men who work to support, mentor, and sponsor their women colleagues are viewed favorably, while women advocating for equity are viewed unfavorably. Organizations with effective male allies exhibit improved career satisfaction and better retention of women. In this BoF, panelists will explore how male allies have made a difference in their careers and contrast their allyship with examples of exclusionary experiences.
