Seb Randle and I discuss what makes this an important topic... FOR MEN.

Women are great at promoting women, but without men onboard, we hit a glass ceiling. 

But it's not 'all about the women at the expense of men'. 

We need to get beyond stereotypes and look at a more inclusive approach that benefits everyone. 

We discuss the all important question for much of the workforce: What's in it for men?

Every individual in an organisation has a part to play. Every individual benefits.

We also discuss:

  • Barbie
  • Privilege
  • Male Suicide
  • Body Dysmorphia

There are a number of great resources in the show notes.

⁉️ What do YOU do to promote people less privileged than you in your workplace⁉️
