In our mission to close the gender wage gap in Boston, it has become very clear that we simply cannot do it without the partnership of Mayor Walsh and the Boston business community. Through our 100% Talent Compact member events, we aim to surface the various solutions that help close the wage gap, including male allyship. We want to encourage and celebrate the male allies in our 100% Talent Compact by providing opportunities these dialogues and understand the power of their stake in this work.

We are thrilled to welcome our 100% Talent Compact Members for a special bonus member briefing this summer, July 16th: Male Allies in the Workplace - From Allyship to Advocacy. We’re delighted to be joined by Jeffery Tobias HalterPresident of YWomen, a strategic consulting company, who will discuss the business, moral imperatives and practical steps men AND women can take in advocating for women’s advancement in the workplace.
