Thanks to the training by W. Brad Johnson and David G. Smith, authors of Athena Rising and Good Guys, MGH has created an Allies-in-Action group of leaders to grow and nurture a community of men aligned around the purpose of being active, reliable allies for women colleagues. To draw on Johnson and Smith’s words, the goal of this allyship is to promote gender fairness and equity through both supportive and collaborative personal relationships and public acts of sponsorship and advocacy intended to drive systemic improvements to the workplace culture.
