Men want to support gender balance in the industry – but they often don’t know what to do.
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) QLD's Male Allies Program is designed to help men who are already champions in the industry become more vocal, more confident advocates, and to actively support women in their careers.
The Male Allies Mentoring program is a commitment to 5 x 30 minute online modules over 10 weeks, working group discussions + measurement of the ACTIONS participants take as a result of what they have learned. Multiple learning options – we know that every individual learns differently – we have created a few different modes – with the aim to get broader engagement. Participants don’t need to do all components – we find they usually have a preference and that’s where they learn best. [NAWIC.com.au]
What is the Male Allies Program?
NAWIC Queensland has commissioned global diversity and inclusion experts emberin to create a program for men in the construction industry designed to really challenge thinking and stereotypes and to embed some new habits to enable greater gender inclusion in the Construction Industry.
What does participation involve?
Participants will do 5 short online modules over 10 weeks, a log book, communications plus 3-4
face to face discussions lead by a male sponsor appointed for the group. All simple discussion
templates and instructions provided. It’s easy!
When and How?
Start a group in your organization at any time. Appoint a ‘sponsor’ to lead the group. Face to face discussions are important - these discussions can be led by a man who is part of the group and is the ‘sponsor’ – although he does not have to be a subject matter expert – he is on the learning journey as well.
