This is a heavy and fascinating ep, my friends. Our workplace can be one of the single greatest factors in our mental health, so I wanted to sit down with one of America’s leaders in business ethics and masculine psychology, Dave M Mayer. We dive deep into the research to discuss the ways “one-dimensional” masculinity impacts the work we do, the language we use, and the backlash men might get when they stray from it (for example, losing a promotion if they take paternity leave). How do we do better—not just for men and women, but for our culture? Listen in.

Dave Mayer is the John H. Mitchell Professor of Business Ethics at University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. An award-winning researcher and highly rated and sought after teacher and speaker, he is an expert on helping people and organizations lead ethically, inclusively, and positively. He is a regular contributor to the Harvard Business Review and Fast Company, and his research and ideas have been covered in Bloomberg, Forbes, Fortune, Newsweek, NPR, Psychology Today, Slate, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. In his research and teaching, Dave examines how to help men adapt to a healthier form of masculinity that benefits not only themselves, but all people in their lives.
