To the men in the audience: you can make a difference, your colleagues want you to make a difference, and our new Salons (starting with CSWA) will help you.
With that background, here are my top 5 tips for men advocating real change:
5. Commit to making a difference. Join one of our Salons, for example the Association for Women in Science. Several years ago I timidly asked the AWIS Executive Director if I could join despite being a man. The AWIS President replied, "We are an association FOR women in science not OF women in science and we welcome all members who want to support our mission." I couldn't agree more, and have long since dropped my timidity. AWIS has helped me enormously to learn and grow as a leader.
