Men Are Afraid To Mentor Women After #MeToo

and women now blame men for not providing them paths to the top of the company.

Men are afraid to mentor women after #MeToo and it hurts us all: study

LeanIn.org and SurveyMonkey’s new #MentorHer poll reveals Friday that 60% of male managers report feeling “too nervous” about being accused of harassment to interact with women in “common workplace” activities such as mentoring, socializing and one-on-one meetings.

That’s a 32% spike from 2018, with an additional 36% of men saying they now actively avoid women in junior-level positions — effectively chopping down their shot at climbing the corporate ladder.

“The vast majority of managers and senior leaders are men,” says Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, SurveyMonkey board member and founder of LeanIn.Org, in a statement. “If they are reluctant even to meet one-on-one with women, there’s no way women can get an equal shot at proving themselves.”

Widening the gender gap is actually an abuse of power, she says.


Sounds like more men are being smart about protecting their careers. More power to them.

((I still don't understand why women who complain about men use the tag Pound Me Too, but that's just me...))
I'd rather be deplorable than despicable.

Can't blame them. They're dammed if they do and dammed if they don't!

You got to be careful about everything these days. I had to train several women on mail routes over the years and was always very careful and leary about it. Riding around the countryside with a woman not related to me was not the best position to be in, but I was required to do that.

Also years ago, our school wanted to have male mentors for boys to do outdoor activities working kind of with our church at that time. I hated to not do it,but I was not going to risk my lively hood and reputation when I made some kid mad and he accused me of something. It sounded like a good program for the kids without adult males at home, but it was a one on one type thing which is just a no no into days world

It’s an excuse to use to get more when you can’t make the grade and may not be as qualified as the next person, but think you deserve the position because you went to collage.

Billy Graham was ahead of his time....he never met with a woman one on one, never was behind closed doors with one in a meeting including the elevator.

You and me too brother: try explaining that to your wife that you was accused of it. Not good on a marriage.
