Dear men: You need to go beyond "supporting women" and "being an ally." You need to champion women. Hire women. Promote women.
If you're sitting in an office that's 80 percent male at the upper levels, you are not championing women enough. I'm sick of hiring nice guys say 'I don't do the hiring.' If all the guys who 'don't do the hiring' got together and approach the guy who DOES do the hiring and said, 'We need more women in this office,' THAT is championing women.
Staying silent when the boss is a sexist and/or racist doesn't make YOU a sexist and/or racist jerk. But it does make you complicit. Use your voice. Make some noise.

Sabrina: Hi, I’d like to take half a minute to talk to you about the true meaning of Halloween. It’s not about candy and costumes, it’s about family and showing them how much you care. So, don’t buy into the hype and commercialization of the season. This Halloween, stay home with your loved ones. Just gather round the Jack-O-Lantern and remember: the true meaning of Halloween is inside you. Right Salem?
Salem: There’s a pound of candy corn inside me.
Sabrina: Ignore him. Happy Halloween.
