Although women have made considerable progress in entering STEM fields, they continue to be an underrepresented minority, and the male-dominated cultures of these fields can pose challenges to their inclusion. Most men are respectful of women and want to be welcoming and inclusive, yet many are unsure about how to do so. In this presentation, Dr. Kilmartin helps aspiring male allies to understand the barriers and facilitators to participating in creating and maintaining an atmosphere of gender equality and respect, and gives suggestions for men’s continuing development of the skills needed to be allies.
