The author of Good Guys and Athena Rising makes the business case for male engagement in gender equality while integrating why it is good for women, men and the organization. Starting with the fundamentals of excellent allyship across gender and showing what great allies do, he discusses topics related to developing awareness, everyday interactions at work, professional relationships at work, disrupting status quo bias, and advocacy. He integrates a focus on specific challenges and opportunities that allies may encounter in the workplace and makes the case for how better cross-gender allyship skills translate to other marginalized groups in the workplace.
