Join us for July’s Hummingbird Hour event on Tuesday, July 19 at 12 pm EST, where we will discuss the book “Showing Up: How Men Can Become Effective Allies in the Workplace” with its author, Ray Arata.

Ray wrote “Showing Up” to offer support for those seeking to engage in impactful allyship and leadership – for those seeking to be “better men” in their roles as allies, leaders, and partners. He supports his readers to rewrite their own version of healthy masculinity with key concepts and actionable exercises that can be implemented in their day to day behaviors.

You can purchase the book here.
