Please email your letters or questions to submissions<AT>dearpbj<DOT>com. Let me know if you want to use your first name, initials, or a pseudonym to sign the letter. If you don’t indicate a preference, I’ll use your first name or initials. I promise to keep your identity and contact information secret and secure unless you expressly tell me it’s ok to reveal it.
Letters or questions can be as short as a few sentences but try to limit them to 1,000 words or less.
Ultimately, this blog (and the book on male advocacy forthcoming) is about changing fair-minded men’s frame of reference so they can be more effective allies and advocates. As you write your submissions, please feel free to share what others could have done better, what they just didn’t get, or if there was something we can learn from the experience. My hope over time is that this blog will host a chorus of conversations from working women, minorities, and LGBTQ folks. Yes, and even men. Together, our voices will be loud enough to send a clear message to company leaders about what needs to be done; white men need to ‘lean in’ if they are serious about making workplaces more fair.
