A program introducing the preliminary results of Men in the Mix is being planned for the 2020 ABA Midyear Meeting on Saturday, February 15, from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. The program’s title is “Men in the Mix: How to Engage Men on Issues Related to Gender in the Profession.” During this program, the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession will reveal some of the early results of its newest research project—Men in the Mix—which utilized focus groups and qualitative research to better understand why and when men engage in issues traditionally considered “women’s issues” in the law. Following a presentation of initial results, a panel of experts will talk about strategies they are deploying to engage all in advancing attorneys in the legal profession.
