She has combined her training in cultural history with her culinary background, growing up in a "farm-to-table" family when gardening and cooking were simply ways of life.

    NYC Big Book Award: GAB TALKS with Kori Reed, author of MEN-IN-THE-MIDDLE: Conversations to Gain Momentum with Gender Equity's Silent Majority

    NYC Big Book Award: GAB TALKS with Kori Reed, author of MEN-IN-THE-MIDDLE: Conversations to Gain Momentum with Gender Equity's Silent Majority

    INCLUSION IN THE OFFICE“Well researched and written, Reed’s work is a ‘call to arms’ for males trying to make sense of the #MeToo movement. Bravo!”—William Carmichael, PhD, MBA,Corporate Training Leader“Packed with quality interviews, quotes, and Reed’s real-life experience, making this book come to life. In addition, the chapter questions and change management application make it a driver of positive change for gender equity.”—Theresa Nordstrom, SPHR, Founder andChief Talent Officer, Talent Company Inc.Nicholas said a conversation about gender equity without men did not meet the criteria for inclusion. Blake said equity is essential and will happen when we acknowledge that men face challenges too.In Men-in-the-Middle, author Kori Reed interviews men across corporate America about gender equity in the workplace. This is a topic men can influence, as they hold nearly 75 percent of C-suite positions, but they don’t talk about it at the office. As it turns out, men have a lot to say! They are aware of the issues and the impacts and, at the same time, unsure of what to do. This uncertainty renders Men-in-the-Middle, even though they may be supporters, on the silent sidelines of gender equity.Combining interviews with insights from secondary research, Reed seeks to provide a framework to understand this “silent majority” and shine the light on new perspectives and topics that often go undiscussed.Men-in-the-Middle: Conversations to Gain Momentum with Gender Equity’s Silent Majority invites men and women to cultivate conversations by providing an orientation on perspective-taking and laying a foundation to move gender equity forward in a new inclusive way.
