Men As Allies Campaign
Shifra Bronznick, founder of “Advancing Women and the Jewish Community,” is encouraging men not to convene or participate on all-male panels. Her efforts sparked a movement that leaped from religion into the tech and science communities. More than 300 men – rabbis, scientists, and tech leaders included – have signed onto the “Men as Allies” campaign. SXSW, which produces gatherings in music, film, interactive, education and more, now requires all panel organizers to include at least one woman in any session with three speakers or more.
To further the revolution, they need: (1) more men to boycott all-male panels; and (2) both women and men to promote and publicize women experts who are qualified to speak at industry conferences.
