In partnership with DZH Phillips, the Archer Norris EVOLVE Women in Business Roundtable Series presented Ida Abbott’s Breakfast for Champions, a program designed to engage men in sponsoring women for leadership roles. Ida has long been recognized as a leader in the fields of mentoring, leadership and professional development of women. 

Our recent summer roundtable breakfast on July 12, 2016 celebrated men who champion women. The audience included men who are, should be, or want to be, sponsors for women as our core group of executive women continues to explore how we define and build our legacy to support the next generation of women leaders. 

We talked about: 

• Why it matters that men sponsor women
• How to honor men who have successfully sponsored women 
• Specific, concrete steps and strategies for sponsoring women
