Reader Comments about A Male/Female Continuum:

Working towards colleagueship is difficult to visualize on your own... it is brought to life here. It has made a difference in how I feel about myself, how I relate with my spouse and children, and in my relationships at work.”  Joe Gaetan, Monsanto Chemical Group, Canada

One of the most brilliant pieces I've read in a long time.”  Bill Spenla, Dupont

An exciting and effective tool for helping men and women to understand how their relationships are changing -- and need to change -- today.”  Celia Allison Hahn, The Alban Institute

The Male/Female Continuum is far and away one of the best teaching tools that I have seen in terms of its ability to help men and women appreciate the gender dynamics that operate between them. As an African-American male, although this model reflects white norms, l find that many people of color can pick this model up and identify themselves in particular places on the continuum as consistent with their experiences and their relationships. I use the continuum internationally as a basis for work in many cultures.”  Ralph E. de Chabert, SVP, Chief Diversity Officer, Brown-Forman Corporation
