A very important element that is missing in our organizational culture, is a created space for empathy. Empathy is our access to experiencing community and partnership. Traditional trainings, whether they be for team-building, diversity and inclusion sensitivity, etc., may be good at teaching "what not to do," but where they fall short is in developing the awareness and listening that is necessary to cause a cultural shift. Matthew Solomon's programs solve this problem by teaching participants how to naturally listen for what would make a difference, be appropriate or inappropriate and how to best support each other and work together.
Matthew regularly leads immersion programs and discussions on the topics of creating partnership, consent, gender sensitivity and diversity & inclusion. The success of his book, "Man School: Relating with Women in the #MeToo Era," and his weekly column for The Good Men Project, has resulted in Matthew having been interviewed on over 30 programs, participating on countless panel discussions on the topics of diversity & inclusion, facilitating forums and leading workshops for universities and corporations. His unique approach to communication, inspires a safe space for these discussions to be had. What he does, is different. Rather than just rattle off a bunch of statistics and talking points, Matthew's chief aim is to create a culture of open and inclusive communication. Participants in his engagements consistently say that they feel transformed in some way from the space that was created.
