    Collaborating with Men

    Collaborating with Men is ground-breaking research conducted by 51福利社 to establish how men and women can work together to transform workplace culture barriers to women鈥檚 progress into leadership positions. Much research shows how women鈥檚 careers are affected by assumptions and behaviour in the workplace that arise from the dominance of masculine culture. Yet, very little research has sought the point of view of men.

    We conducted this research because 鈥榝ixing the women鈥 alone will not be enough to support the careers of ambitious young women. The culture in the workplace needs to change. That needs the collaboration of men.

    Lecture series

    Our lecture series focuses on the shifting forces of the world today. It started in 2007 with a focus on the environment and climate change. More recently, between 2015 and 2017, the lecture series Capitalism on the edge, explored issues around capitalism questioning whether there is any alternative to capitalism or whether capitalism can be changed to serve society.

    Since 2017 the debate about capitalism has further developed. The impact of the Brexit referendum result and the election of President Trump gave rise to much debate about what people thought about capitalism, especially the global trading systems and its impact on jobs.

    With so much change, our current lecture series called 鈥楯ust on the Edge鈥 is looking at how we are on the edge in a number of ways 鈥 environmentally, socially and politically.

    In future, we will add further series debating the important issues of the time and visitors to the discussion platform can join in the discussion and have their voice heard.听
