Course overview

Toxic masculinity refers to cultural norms that are associated with excessively dominant behavior, misogyny, racism, and homophobia. These traits are harmful to society, and are considered toxic due to their promotion of violence, including sexual assault and domestic violence. The effects of toxic masculinity are harmful to women, racial and ethnic minority groups, those who identify as LGBTQ+, and men themselves. And if ignored, toxic masculinity will ruin an organization's culture. In this program, we'll take a hard look at how toxic masculinity shows up in the workplace, and why it happens in the first place. We'll explore how to confront this issue, and how to shift your organization's culture away from it.
