Candid conversations about #payequality with #maleallies and #womenleaders today with my friend and collaborator, Cassandra Faurote.

On stage discussing allyship at the Women in Tech Festival -

Some key points:
1. In being an ally, a little action can make a big difference: like acknowledging someone else’s good idea in a meeting, introducing someone as a colleague and leader in their field, pointing out when a woman is interrupted and allowing her to finish.

2. One of the ways to being more allies to the table is to have more (white cis hetero non disabled) men who are allies make public mistakes. And for the community to allow for those mistakes, have a constructive conversation about it, and continue to work together.

3. Women (and all underrepresented people) should not have to lead the diversity actions, we have been doing it long enough.

4. Women need to be allies as well. Lots of women are extremely underrepresented like trans women, women with disabilities, Latinas and Native women. Use your privilege to help others who are less represented and have a further distance to travel.
5. AND lastly, something that always bothers me in these conversations: we ALL need to acknowledge that gender is not binary, it’s a continuum. Some people don’t identify as man or woman - or identify as men some days and women other days - and we need to include everyone in our conversations about gender and representation.

“Not cool, bro” by @betterallies
When you see something, do you say something? Do you push back? Do you say, “Not cool, bro?” Here are some cautionary tales we can all learn from. Plus some positive stories…

1. Confront the dude who just touched your co-worker inappropriately
2. Call BS if you hear someone isn’t hiring a highly qualified person…because she’s too attractive
3. Say no to all-male speaking lineups
4. Push back on offensive jokes
5. Pay attention to pay

During #SAAM, we recognize more than ever than women can’t change the world alone. We need male allies to choose action and help us with the weight of this patriarchy. Thanks to all who do!

A few weeks ago, I got the chance to host a tea experience at @zenchainyc and share the gongfu tea ceremony with fifteen strangers - all strong women from different walks of life in nyc connecting over tea and shared experiences 🍵 It was delightful coming up with the tea flight and snack pairings, sourced from my favorite tea houses & chinatown spots in NY! The event was called “Practical Magic: Tea & Other Rituals for Self-Care” and we had awesome conversation on how to integrate practical self-care rituals into our daily lives.

We had so much fun that we're doing it again next Friday! Let me know if you want to come have some tea 🍵 ☺️ more here - practicalmagic.splashthat.com
Deep gratitude goes to @cassandthecity for the incredible support and co-creating the @jointhecosmos community, and to Chris and George at Zenchai for supporting us and being the best #maleallies! #teawithinga #gongfucha

Last night was the first session of our Spring volunteer training. We had great conversations including chatting about the strongest men in our lives. We identified that the strongest men have been caring, supportive, thoughtful, passionate , good listeners and more! We are really excited to have new folks on board and to be learning together!

Male allies- where are you?! 🙋‍♂️🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏼‍♂️🙋🏽‍♂️🙋🏾‍♂️🙋🏿‍♂️
Since graduating college I am so blessed to be in the company of men who value women, who see us as humans too- not transactional things. It’s crazy that I’m constantly surprised when my male friends here in #DC are aware and cognizant of the harassment women face & make efforts for women to feel safe on dating apps, in bars, in general. To all the men that #seesomethingsaysomething & to all the men who’s actions & words actively demonstrate they’re against rape- thank you! Thank you. Thank you. Please, please continue to speak up & continue to educate your friends, co-workers, family, strangers. #menagainstdomesticviolence #menagainstrape #menareawesome #manpower #maleallies #washingtondc #safespaces #together #positivemalerolemodels #breakingthecycle #socialchange Reposting from the @refinery29

Shared the @zanieschicago stage tonight with some amazing comics for an amazing cause (@unwomen) and talked to amazing audience members after the show. Discussing gender, feminism, harassment, actionable steps towards equality AND making jokes at a major club in a major comedy town with an audience who wants and is receptive to change...it was pretty cool. Steps in the right direction. More change, is coming. 💛🌟 #comedy #standup #standupcomedy #nonprofit #nonprofitorganization #jokes #needalaugh #feminism #feminist #womenincomedy #UNwomen #womensupportingwomen #womenempowerment #gotyourback #micdrop #laughsfordays #maleallies #chicagocomedy #comedyforacause #funnyfemales #katessquad #thekatesU @thekatescomedy

Check out some photos from our very first male EngageMENt conference today at Loyola Secondary School in Oakville this morning! It includes students from across Halton!

Our EngageMENt program, created by our Public Education team, works to educate male youth on how to be allies in the fight to end violence against women, and helps them learn more about healthy relationships. •
Our first annual conference today includes a youth panel discussion, speakers such as former CFL player Chuck Winters, and Oakville Town Councillor Sean O’Meara! •
We know men, especially young men, CAN and DO make a big difference in ending gender-based violence, and are thrilled to see so many male youth at today’s event! •

Oftentimes though we are not afforded that safe space. I just wanted to acknowledge that yes, I know some young guys that are good and understanding.

#EqualPayDay from the #bettermanconference Equal pay is not just numbers on a pay check, it also deals with issues such as maternal leave, child care, education and hiring practices. #equalpay .

Steps I'm taking to close the gender pay gap:
1. Conduct a pay audit
2. Use objective criteria for hiring & promotions
3. Give women stretch assignments
4. Don't saddle women with office housework
5. Encourage women to negotiate
