About the Event

This book discussion is sponsored by Rabbi Paul Kipnes (Gender Equity Advocate, Cohort 5) & Rabbi Daniel Plotkin.

What’s missing from gender equality efforts? 


Women are at a disadvantage in the workplace, from unequal pay to sexual harassment to the inability to be promoted in a fair and timely manner. And while organizations are looking to fix the issue, too many gender inclusion initiatives focus exclusively on changing women, leaving men out of the equation. Such efforts reinforce the perception that these are “women’s issues” and that men—often the most powerful stakeholders in organizations—don’t need to be involved.

As gender in the workplace experts David G. Smith and W. Brad Johnson show in this crucial book, men have a profound opportunity to promote gender equality at work. Research shows that when men are deliberately engaged in gender inclusion programs, 96% of women in those organizations perceive real progress on gender equality, compared with only 30% of women in organizations without strong male engagement.

Good Guys provides a research-based and practical guide for how to be a male ally to women in the workplace. Filled with first-hand accounts from both men and women and tips for getting started, this book shows how men can partner with women to advance women’s leadership by breaking ingrained gender stereotypes, overcoming unconscious biases, developing and supporting the talented women around them, and creating productive working relationships with women—especially in a post-#MeToo world.
