DLA Piper LLP (US)
33 Arch Street, Boston MA


Male allyship has been touted as a key ingredient in advancing women. But what does this actually mean? How can men become an ally or sponsor? What can women do to foster these relationships? Join us as this seminar examines how relationships with people in power make a difference in women’s careers. Attendees will hear from Jodi Detjen, Co-Founder and Managing Partner with Orange Grove Consulting and will receive exclusive highlights from Male Allies for Women Leaders: Why They Matter, a joint report by Brandon Hall Group and Orange Grove Consulting. 

You will also learn:
  • The difference between allyship, sponsorship and mentorship
  • What professionals – both men and women -- think about male allyship
  • Where you are on the allyship continuum 
  • How to create power relationships within your organization to help advance more women
