Draymond Green, Becky Hammond at forefront of NBA’s #LeanInTogether campaign for gender equality

We men have a responsibility to support the women in our lives and help them reach their goals and dreams.

For the second year in a row, the NBA is promoting the #LeanInTogether campaign to support gender equality, with Draymond Green, Chris Bosh, Gordon Hayward, and Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammond taking a part in the new PSA (which you can see above).

“Men leaning in is a win-win proposition,” said Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and founder of LeanIn.Org. “When men are dedicated fathers and partners, they have healthier, happier children and stronger relationships. When they stand up for gender equality at work, they outperform their peers. Equality is not just the right thing for men—it’s the smart thing.”

The goal is to promote men as good dads, 50/50 partners, and people willing to stand up for women in the workplace. Things we should be doing already.
