The Power of Allies:  The Role of Men in Women's Quest for Parity

RWN Members please join us for an evening of networking, learning, and collaboration as we welcome John Curtis.  Engaging colleagues and leaders as allies can improve gender parity and increase our value for different perspectives. Mentors, leaders and sponsors are allies who bring unique insights and perspectives that can unlock hidden identities and capabilities. Allies can be in places and in conversations where they can influence on our behalf.  All of us need the benefit of allies throughout our workplaces, communities and careers.  

John will moderate a panel of local professionals from Harris Corporation, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, Xerox, and the Rochester Women’s Network on the Power of Allies in the workplace.
