  2. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men Men are expected to be assertive and confident, so we welcome their leadership. In contrast, women are expected to be nurturing and collaborative, so when they lead, they go against our expectations and often face pushback. Challenge these stereotypes by pointing out bias and supporting your female colleagues. You have a strong incentive to make sure that women succeed in your organization—men who work well with women and tap the full talents of their teams outperform their peers. TIPS FOR MEN: HOW TO BE A WORKPLACE MVP
  3. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men 1SITUATION If a woman is competent, she does not seem nice enough, but if a woman seems really nice, she is considered less competent. This can have a big impact on a woman's career. Listen for the language of this likeability penalty. If you hear a woman called "aggressive" or "out for herself," ask, "Would you have the same reaction if a man did the same thing?" In many cases, the answer will be no. SOLUTION 1 CHALLENGE THE LIKABILITY PENALTY
  4. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men#LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men Women are often hired based on past performance, while men are often hired for their potential.
  5. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men 2 EVALUATE PERFORMANCE FAIRLY SITUATION Male performance is often overestimated compared to female performance1, a bias that is even more pronounced when review criteria are unclear.2 This helps explain why women are hired and promoted based on their past, while men are hired and promoted based on their potential.3 SOLUTION Make sure you are aware of gender bias in evaluating performance. Know the criteria for what constitutes excellent performance and be prepared to explain your evaluations.
  6. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men#LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men Men will apply for jobs when they meet 60 percent of the hiring criteria, while women wait until they meet 100 percent.4
  7. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men SITUATION SOLUTION 3 GIVE WOMEN CREDIT While men typically attribute their success to innate qualities, women often attribute success to external factors like "getting lucky" and "help from others.”5 When women and men work together on tasks, women are given less credit for successes and blamed more for failures.6 Because women receive–and give themselves–less credit, their confidence often erodes. Make sure women get the credit they deserve and look for opportunities to acknowledge their contributions. When you introduce female coworkers, emphasize their accomplishments!
  8. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men#LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men Women get less airtime and have less influence in meetings.
  9. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men SOLUTION 4 GET THE MOST OF OUT OF MEETINGS SITUATION Men tend to talk more and make more suggestions in meetings, while women are interrupted more, given less credit for their ideas, and have less overall influence.7 Without full participation, meetings cannot tap everyone's expertise, which undermines team outcomes. If female colleagues are interrupted, interject and say you'd like to hear them finish. Be aware of "stolen ideas" and look for opportunities to acknowledge the women who first proposed them.
  10. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men SOLUTION 5 SHARE OFFICE HOUSEWORK SITUATION Women do more "office housework"–service and support work such as taking notes, organizing events, and training new hires. These tasks steal valuable time away from core responsibilities and can keep a team member from participating fully. Do your part to help distribute office housework equally; it often creates opportunities to collaborate with different coworkers and develop new skills.
  11. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men#LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men Motherhood triggers assumptions that a woman is less competent and less committed to her career.
  12. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men SOLUTION 6 MAKE WORK WORK FOR PARENTS SITUATION Motherhood triggers assumptions that a woman is less competent and less committed to her career. As a result, she is held to higher standards and presented with fewer opportunities.8 Don’t assume mothers won’t be willing to take on challenging assignments or travel. If you’re a parent, be vocal about the time you spend away from work with your children; this gives mothers– and fathers–in your organization permission to do the same.
  13. #LeanInTogether | LeanIn.Org/Men When men lean in for equality, they win—and so does everyone else. Men have an important role to play in reaching equality, and everyone benefits when they do. Children with involved fathers are happier, healthier, and more successful. Couples who share responsibilities have stronger marriages. Diverse teams and companies produce better results. Leaning in is not just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do. Learn more at leanin.org/men PROUD TO #LEANINTOGETHER
