The Quorum Initiative Webinar - Success Partners: What Allyship is and How to Apply It at Work

The Quorum Initiative are hosting a webinar on Wednesday 14 October with Michelle King, author of THE FIX: Overcome the Invisible Barriers that Hold Women Back at Work; former Director of Inclusion, Netflix

For years, we’ve been telling women that in order to succeed at work, they have to change themselves first— lean in, negotiate like a man, don’t act too nice or you’ll never get the corner office.

But after nearly twenty years working with major Fortune 500 companies as a leading gender equality expert, Michelle King has realized one simple truth—the tired advice of fixing women doesn’t fix anything. The reality is that workplaces were never designed for difference, this creates challenges to women’s advancement and men’s fulfillment at work.

Based on Michelle’s research and exclusive interviews with major companies and thought leaders, this talk will reveal the barriers to women’s advancement and why allyship is the key to tackling inequality at work. Equality is not about women or and it is not about men, it is about making workplaces work for everyone. Together all women and men can become success partners, by practicing allyship and creating a work environment that values difference.
