A new law in New Jersey will require schools to highlight and promote, "economic diversity, equity, inclusion, tolerance, and belonging in connection with gender and sexual orientation, race and ethnicity, disabilities, and religious tolerance." These lessons will also teach students about unconscious bias and economic disparities, and the impact they have on individuals and society as a whole.
"Men's voices are critical because of, not in spite of, their gender. When men speak up against gender disparities or gender discrimination, they not only become visible as allies who can be counted on to support industry or company initiatives to advance parity, they also foster awareness and acceptance about gender inequity as a shared problem not a special interest."
