Our Allyship Program for Men is called Step UP and it is a program like no other. For more than ten years People Measures has been successfully running Women in Leadership programs, with literally hundreds of participants. We realised that a key missing gap was a program for men.
The StepUp program invites and challenges men to StepUp, and to educate them – on the experience of women in the workplace – and on the critical role they need to play as allies – in the advancement of Diversity and Inclusion in organisations.
But be warned. This isn’t about making men feel like ‘Champions’ – just for doing what women have been doing on their own for years – nor is it about collective guilt and shame.
This is a program that invites men to be unwavering and courageous in their self-reflection and examine the part they play in perpetuating the current system.
It unapologetically invites them to be outspoken and active about the role they choose to play in pushing for equity and diversity.
StepUp can be delivered in-house and tailored for your organisation and your particular gender challenges, or with a group of men from different organisations at People Measures’ public program. The core of the program is three days of workshops (delivered as a combination of full and half days), plus individual coaching, and a meaningful action project delivered by participants.
The learning outcomes you can expect are:
Are you and your men brave enough? If you think so – come and speak to us or ask for more information at StepUp@peoplemeasures.com.au.
