#Male Heroes

We asked our community about their #maleheroes. Over 70 names came up, and here’s our first selection. Guys, you rock!

Why is diversity important to you?

Diversity sounds simple, but it’s not. Usually you surround yourself with people in whom you somehow recognize yourself. However, this can lead to the fact that one acts too similarly and gets one’s views confirmed, instead of constantly challenging oneself anew. But that’s exactly what it takes to progress, and it’s all the more important for me to deal with diverse people who give me different views and inspire me – such as through the Global Digital Women Afterwork series in NRW, where I like to be a guest in order to promote the community and see beyond the end of my own nose.

As an elected #malehero, what is your advice for other men?

The future is female – embrace it! ✌️
