A New Map for White Male Leadership: How to unlock what’s been missing in driving cultural and organizational transformation 

Audiences:  Executives, Leadership, General)
Format: Keynote, workshop

Many white male leaders find themselves in a unique bind. On one hand, they hear and support the groundswell of social change demanding new voices at the table. On the other, they fear that, by simply stepping to the side, they will suffer irrevocable damage to their professional identities and mental health. Creative consultant, master storyteller, and hetero cis-white man Jordan Bower argues that there is a third way that integrates these divergent perspectives, accelerating the end of patriarchy while also offering an unprecedented way for white men to participate in cultural transformation. This inspiring and funny talk illuminates a new way forward for all of us, with uncommon hope, vulnerability and emotional depth. A transformational experience for everyone.
