  • + × Can men join WCM?

    Yes. Research shows that everyone benefits when men lean in for equality -- starting with men themselves. Men can support us in our mission by joining WCM as a 'WCM Ally', encouraging colleagues to join, spreading awareness of WCM and gender diversity internally at their firm, and encouraging their firm to become a WCM Partner. Going forward, we plan to offer tips, videos, and other resources that engage men in the discussion and offer opportunities to contribute to the goal of achieving gender equality. We encourage you to distribute these resources to your firm's employees and/or integrate them into existing training programs for managers.
