Galvanising men to promote workplace cultural change and foster equality

The Women’s Business Council and the Men as Change Agents (MACA) working group launched their MACA toolkit on April 9th from Number 10 Downing Street. The MACA toolkit provides ideas for business leaders to drive towards gender balance in their teams and close the gender pay gap and foster equality in the workplace.

The launch was supported by the Home Secretary who wrote to the CEO’s of the FTSE 350 and top 150 private companies, galvanising men to promote workplace cultural change.

The Women’s Business Council is committed to increasing the number of male leaders as change agents, by building and showcasing a critical mass of supportive male CEOs who can drive real change as trailblazer organisations improving outcomes for girls and women accessing, progressing and remaining in industry.

Emer Timmons, a member of the Women’s Business Council and co-chair of the MACA working group shared in a recent communication to Advanced Boardroom Excellence, that they have had a "Great reaction globally [to the launch] and even from as far as the Wall Street Journal to Australia, across Europe and America."
