Women in Science Speaker Series: David G. Smith, PhD

During Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace, participants will discover why men have a crucial role to play in promoting gender equality at work, how to create a culture of allyship, and what it means to advocate for policies and practices that improve the workplace for everyone and that make organizations successful.  It’s an especially timely topic as increased care responsibilities during the pandemic posed challenges for women and contributed to more women falling behind or withdrawing from in their careers.
