Abstract

Men can serve unique and critical roles as advocates of gender equity, particularly in maledominated units or organizations, such as most engineering departments and many universities. This panel brings together a group of men with diverse backgrounds and experiences to discuss their perspectives and offer practical skills for men to effectively serve as advocates for gender equity. This paper augments the panel and captures the backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and recommendations of the panelists, thereby providing a lasting resource for those unable to attend the panel or future interested individuals. The information we present targets men and administrators, who will better understand the barriers to advocacy, learn best-practices of effective advocacy, and hear first-hand experiences of successful advocacy.
