Men for Inclusion
Study after study has shown how a more inclusive workplace benefits everyone - Many men are now realising that, far from being a threat, inclusion and inclusive organisations actually benefit them personally as well. Along with happier, more successful workplaces, inclusion creates better health and wellbeing outcomes.
By freeing some men from the “straightjacket” of conforming to outdated male stereotypes, inclusion enhances opportunity and choice.
Not all men feel this way, though. Many of them feel threatened by these changes and actively resist them. Others are simply passive, thinking that inclusion has little or nothing to do with them.
Through our ADUCE workshops, Men for Inclusion can support you with this and give you the tools to put it into pratice on a daily basis.
What are the ADuce workshop aims & objectives?
The ADuce workshop will take participants on a journey building their AWARENESS of relative advantage and accidental sexisms and helping them develop a DESIRE to become active inclusion leaders and supporters of DEI initiatives.
Who should attend?
The workshops are open to all, we are pleased to welcome:
- Individuals (men, women and non-binary) who want to develop their inclusive leadership skills to boost their careers
- DEI and HR professionals who want to learn more about engaging men in their initiatives.
Participants will leave the workshop with a desire to step forward and step up to improve diversity and inclusion within their teams, organisations and personal life. They will have built an awareness of the ways in which exclusion is hindering the performance of their staff, their peers and their managers
They will also be invited to hold a mirror up to themselves to ensure that their own behaviours are not holding others back
Insight into how to help others through the journey to becoming advocates for better inclusion in the workplace
Our ADUCE methodology takes leaders and managers on a journey. We create Awareness of the lived experience of others from under-represented groups. We then create a Desire for change and an Understanding of what needs to be done to achieve it. Finally, we help to build the Capability for change and Embed it into the corporate culture.
Developed by Men For Inclusion, the proven “ADUCE” model helps participants understand, adopt and embed new behaviours and values that have a positive impact on all - particularly those from under-represented groups. We create a safe space where participants can explore their feelings around inclusive culture, allowing them to develop their own ideas without any sense of guilt, prejudice, or judgement. They can voice their opinions and fears and address any ideas they are uncomfortable with or feel challenged by.
ADuce workshop for individuals
This initial workshop will take place virtually, over 90 minutes, for a group of up to 12 individuals. The key focus will be on Awarness and Desire:
Awareness of male relative advantage and the female lived experience/accidental sexisms.
Desire will look at the journey that men take from being passive/resistors to male allies/inclusion champions and the importance of building a personal case for men to become allies - answering the "what's in it for me?"
The workshop includes a mix of presentations / videos, discussions, and group activities. A workbook will be provided for each delegate. Each workshop is facilitated by two of our Men for Inclusion team.
On completion of this workshop, we encourage you to participate on the next part of the journey by joining the next workshop adUCe, (Understanding and Capability) to complete the programme.
These workshops are based on the programmes that we deliver to corporate clients on a larger scale. If you would like more information about our corporate programmes, please contact Katie.Robertson@e2w.co
