Hear from the men thinking bigger than flowers this Mother’s Day.

To accelerate progress for women and parents at work, we need all hands on deck. So to celebrate Mother’s Day, we’re showcasing the men who are working actively to build a workplace where women are recognized fully for their worth, and parenthood is celebrated as a strength.

Join us and our gracious hosts at Hill Country BBQ for their famous margaritas and BBQ sliders (veggie options too!), and hear from men who are blazing a trail for women and parents, across workplaces, governments and homes:

  • Ish McLaughlin, Head of North America Investor Sales, Citibank

  • Ross Allen, Director (North America), UK Department of International Trade

  • Yetkin Yuce, Director of Product Innovation, AMC Networks

  • Alexis Johnson, Vice President, Charter Communications

We’ll talk about why supporting women and parents in the workplace is critical to innovation and profitability; how employers, governments and individuals can champion the changes we need; how sharing the load at home can help to close the gender gap at work; and how each of us can better articulate the business case for equality.

Because the only thing we might love more than Mother’s Day breakfast in bed is a diverse and inclusive workplace.

We encourage men and women alike to join the conversation, and welcome babies and children of all ages.
