Forward Fest – Voice of Solidarity: The Role of Men in Advancing Women Entrepreneurs
August 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Friday, August 17
11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Doyenne’s Voices of Solidarity workshop will bring together men and women to explore the gender dynamics at play in entrepreneurial ecosystems. Men play a critical role is building inclusive communities. We will examine how specific behaviors and expressions of power create situations where women can be silenced and excluded. And, because women are diverse, we will address other aspects of inclusion such a race and class.
Our goal is to: 1) identify problematic behaviors, 2) discuss them in ways that are authentic and accountable, and 3) practice new ways of engaging that are more productive for everyone. We invite you to step into an uncomfortable space with us to develop new perspectives, develop skills, and gather ideas for changes to make in your company. Building inclusive entrepreneurial communities and inclusive start-up ventures benefit everyone involved.
