TORONTO: Men Lean In: Together in the Conversation for Gender Equality - Lean in Canada

Men have an important role to play in reaching equality, and everyone benefits when they do.

Children with involved fathers are happier, healthier, and more successful. Couples who share responsibilities have stronger marriages. Diverse teams and companies produce better results. Leaning in is not just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do. When men lean in for equality, they win—and so does everyone else.

We’re bringing together a panel of men who know the importance of women’s empowerment, and are champions of equality within their organizations. We’ll discuss everything from mentorship, career advancement, unconscious bias, navigating the workplace following the #MeToo movement, and how to bring men into the conversation.
