Check Out the Lineup for This Year's IWL ALL IN Allyship Summit
October 4, 2023
IWL Foundation introduces the ALLYSHIP INITIATIVE. ALL IN is a national movement focused on Allyship in the workplace.
IWL’s groundbreaking State of Allyship-in-Action Research Study featured in Harvard Business Review (October 7, 2022) makes the case for activating men as allies to move the needle on gender equity.
We are in the second phase of the 2023 research effort which includes an expanded focus on the experiences of intersectional groups of women. For this phase, we are interested in including more women participants in our sample from each of the following groups:

THE ALLYSHIP INITIATIVE
From our early beginnings in 2010, IWL recognized that MEN ARE KEY to truly moving the needle on gender equity in the workplace. Men were always a part of our conference programming. In 2016, we became intentional about a focus on male allies and were the first to develop the Activating Men As Allies Workshop series. That program has been delivered to many organizations and to men across the globe. And with the inaugural ALL IN Summit in 2022, we were excited to amplify this movement as we continue to work with male allies to help boldly make a difference in reshaping the cultures in which they work as they build male ally communities in their organizations and strive for gender equity. We are truly better together!
Activating Men as Allies Workshop
IWL helps organizations leverage their full talent bench by partnering to build cultures of respect and equal opportunity. The events of the past few years erased a decade of progress toward the advancement of women. To truly move the needle on gender equality, men are key.
Allyship is a process, and it starts with understanding where you currently are, and how to put your beliefs into action. Take an IWL Allyship Assessment to find our where you are on your allyship journey.
State of Allyship-in-Action Research
IWL’s groundbreaking State of Allyship-in-Action Research Study featured in HBR (October 7, 2022) makes the case for activating men as allies to move the needle on gender equity. It’s back in 2023, with an expanded focus on the experiences of intersectional groups, and the practice (or lack of practice) of allyship to women by other women.
I’m ALL IN as an ally to women and others who are underrepresented in the workplace.
I acknowledge the limits of my knowledge about other people’s experiences but don’t use that as a reason not to think and act.
I do not remain silent when witnessing devaluing behavior, but make every effort to confront it and call it out.
I work to build relationships not only with those devalued because of their identities, but also with people privileged by their identities in order to challenge them in their thinking.
I don’t have it all figured out, but am committed to leveraging my own privilege to take action to create changes.
