Male Champions of Change Philippines Virtual Launch: BuildBackBetter: Leadings Resilient Teams towards Responsive and Inclusive Recovery

03 July 2020, Philippines — As the recovery from the crisis continues to unfold, both men and women leaders must work together to listen, learn, and lead with practical plans and gendered economic responses. The engagement of leaders is a critical resource in empowering and advancing the workplace as we transition to a post- COVID-19 business setting scenario. As principal decision-makers in organizations, CEOs have massive responsibilities and accountabilities to introduce incremental and transformational changes, not only internally, but in society at large.

In gearing CEO commitment as a fundamental strategic priority for a strong economic response and recovery, MCC PH strives to strengthen gender equality, diversity and inclusion alongside the psychosocial and mental health wellbeing of the workforce in the “new normal”. To further the impact, in partnership with the Makati Business Club, MCC PH is organizing its public official launch virtually in the Philippines via the Zoom Web platform. This is to formally welcome and engage more CEOs and business leaders across different sectors and industries in the country to take part in a high coalition network of male CEOs stepping up beside women taking action on gender inequality.

Male Champions of Change (MCC) is a globally recognized, innovative strategy for advancing women in leadership and achieving gender equality. The strategy engages members as ‘champions’ not because they are perfect, but because they publicly commit to leading practical, constructive and disruptive actions to accelerate change.
