It’s essential we shine a spotlight on the work being done by men to bring about gender equality, and to hold frank and honest conversations about what more needs to be done to improve gender relations in the workplace, at home and in society.
Listen to the on-demand recording of this discussion where everywoman Founder Maxine Benson is joined by special guests Pierre Dupont (Accenture) and Sue Gregory-Phillips (Centrica) to explore some of the most pressing questions about male allyship in 2021 and beyond.
Pierre Dupont is a Managing Director at Accenture, focused on Canada’s Defence and Public Safety sectors. For more than 20 years, he has helped departments and agencies achieve their mission by solving complex business problems. He leads a team of professionals who assist government and public service organisations managing cross-border flow of people and goods, providing national security, and building a resilient defense posture. He is also Accenture’s Managing Director for Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) in their Health and Public Sector practice in Canada — a role that sees him leading on the strategy to achieve Accenture’s corporate objective to be Canada’s more diverse and inclusive employer.
Sue Gregory-Phillips is an IT Service Delivery Manager with significant professional experience in the Technical and end user Service environments. Sue has worked with Centrica for more than 20 years and possesses strong analytical and interpersonal skills which have been key to the identification of pertinent solutions as well as the establishment and maintenance of effective working relationships with both peers and seniors. In addition to her core role, Sue has championed the diversity and inclusion agenda within Centrica — primarily as an allies lead for the Centrica Women’s Network, as well as organising and leading the weekly culture corner (a forum that brings together colleagues from across the organisation to discuss all things culture).
