For 2019’s Masculinity in the Workplace Conference, we're on a mission to redefine the notion of ‘male hero’. In an afternoon of live discussion, debate and exploration we will collectively re-define a new, modern masculinity and celebrate the benefits of this for a happier, more fulfilling and inclusive workplace.

The word ‘hero’ conjures a mythical figure unattainable for men in today’s world. However, there are many men who have faced difficulty and heartache and triumphed, not through brute force, but by expanding their capacity for vulnerability. These men show us the opportunity of relinquishing privilege and letting go of outdated stereotypes.

By challenging the limiting and narrow constructs of masculinity that currently exist in the workplace, we will curate a fresh conversation to provide inspiration for change. We will look at the opportunities for male leaders to embrace change, expand their capacity for vulnerability, proudly work flexibly and stimulate an open conversation around mental health issues.

Join us in creating a culture of inclusion for the workplace; a culture where being a male leader is a celebration of positive vulnerability, dual caregiving and balanced mental health.

We will explore:

  • What does modern masculinity in the workplace look like?
  • What are the advantages of letting go of outdated stereotypes about masculinity?
  • How could men use their privilege to benefit everyone in the workplace?
  • How can masculine leadership move from 'power over' to 'power with' and 'power to'?
  • How do we get more men to take on primary / dual caregiver roles?

We will be covering this and more with a fantastic line-up of speakers which include: Speakers include: Mary Portas (Portas Agency), Will Pike (Disability activist), Han-Son Lee (Daddi Life), Christine Armstrong, Marvyn Harrison (Dope Black Dads), Phil Bartlett (CDM Group), Richard Schmidt (Coca-Cola European Partners)
