The last year has seen a flurry of conversation about women, work, and success. Missing from much of this? The other 50% of the population.
Research shows that Millennial men feel more conflicted than women about work-family balance, are more likely to ask for flex time, and increasingly say they want their marriages to be equal partnerships. Many are also opting out of corporate America, launching their own ventures on their own terms.
On the other hand, younger men may be less likely to see sexism as a lingering problem, since so many of them grew up with female classmates who often outperformed or -- in college -- outnumbered them. Men still often expect that their own careers will take precedence, and they're behind the rise of a start-up culture that prioritizes family-unfriendly policies like all-night hackathons and 90-hour weeks.
So are Millennial men going to help revolutionize the way we work? Or will they perpetuate the workplace norms we’ve toiled under for decades?
