From part of the problem to part of the solution
White men in the creative, media and marketing industries significantly outnumber women in leadership positions.
This directly and indirectly puts women at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to pay, promotion, justice and opportunity.
At best, bias restricts opportunities. At worst, power is abused and the behaviour towards women is literally criminal.
NNC Allies works with men to better understand and educate the principles, behaviours and language that can make a difference to the opportunities given to women in the industry.
Allies meet once a month to discuss and learn how to role model behaviours that can make a difference towards the opportunities given to women and improve attitudes in our industry.
Each monthly session brings participants together in groups of 8-10 people. Sessions typically cover:
This is a long-term commitment that you’ll need to factor in before you sign up. In order for the process to have a lasting benefit you need to make sure you can make the sessions and be open and honest in your reflections and feedback. Allies Circles are all about giving and receiving with peers. Creating a group that can trust each other to be there when needed. We initially ask for 6 months of commitment to your group. How long the group remains after that will be up to you.
Never Not Creative Allies is best suited for men in the creative. media and marketing industry who are ready to build their confidence and become an ally to women who are being treated poorly in our industry. They provide a safe space for men to share observations, past mistakes, and potential solutions for the future. Facilitated by trained Facilitators, each Allies Circle shares tips from leaders who have already been through the program.
