Do you yourself feel this way or have you heard the men in your organization express these concerns?
“I have to be very careful communicating with women.”
“I don’t know what the rules are any longer or when I’ve crossed the line.”
“Walking on eggshells is affecting my ability to be myself and interact with the women on my team.”
The MeToo movement, with all its significance, has left men more cautious around women at work. Some are finding that minimizing their interactions with the women on their teams is the best way of not saying or doing something that could be misinterpreted and misunderstood.
But that’s no solution! The answer is in expanding your awareness to ensure that your words and actions always reflect your best intentions and character as a stand-up guy.
We want to help you maintain your status as a trusted and valued ally to the women in your life, whether they’re your coworkers, your spouse, your children, or your closest friends.
