About the Author
Ray Arata is an award-winning leader in the field of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), specifically known for his work in engaging men as allies. The founder of Better Man Movement LLC, he is a sought-after speaker, consultant, and trainer who delivers keynotes and facilitates trainings for massive global clients, such as PWC, StubHub, Genentech, eBay, Walgreens, Sierra Club, Google, Bloomberg, and many more.

Ray's Better Man Conference (as seen in Forbes, The Good Men Project, and Fortune) is an international industry-leading event that focuses on the development of healthy masculinity and men as allies and partners. With locations in London, New York City, and San Francisco, the conference draws almost 200 major organizations annually.

Praise for Ray Arata and Better Man LLC "Showing Up is a critical and timely book that inspires men to stand up for gender and racial justice on the job. Ray Arata makes a compelling case that men care deeply about good leadership and equality in the workplace and Showing Up is the 'how to' manual for how they can intervene in ways that make them better men. This book is a must read for corporate leaders and any man who wants to live up to his potential as an ally and a leader who can shift the world--one workplace at a time."--Jennifer Siebel Newsom, filmmaker and founder of the Representation Project "Showing Up gives us the game plan we need to consciously and continually be better allies, men, and humans by showing us how to take our intentions and turn them into impact; how to connect with, stay in, and lead from our hearts." --Justin Baldoni, actor, filmmaker; co-founder of the Wayfarer Foundation; and author of Man Enough: Undefining My Masculinity "Ray is an award-winning and devoted ally and extraordinary role model for other men, bringing a deep understanding of human needs, knowledge of behavioral change, and a huge vision for inclusionary leadership and organizations."--Amy Logan, President, US National Committee for UN Women San Francisco Bay Area; CEO, Gender Innovation

"As men we're trained to split ourselves in two: the rational worker in public, the emotional human at home. What a loss--on both sides of the equation. Ray Arata's great gift is that he can help men connect heads and hearts, passion, and productivity. Read this book and let him show you how to be more present at work and in life!"--Michael Kimmel, author of Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era

"Diversity, equity, and inclusion leaders understand how critical it is to have everyone, especially men, engaged in the work of creating an inclusive workplace (organization, society!) where all people can thrive. The challenge is making the space for men to truly connect, reflect and then eventually act--one that doesn't also cast shame, blame, and do more harm than good. Showing Up explores healthy masculinity through Ray Arata's inimitable voice to create that space. It's a must read for practitioners to then share with the men in their lives and organizations."--Cristina Santos, Head of Diversity & Inclusion and Equal Employment Opportunity, North America, Sanofi "In my experience, active engagement from men is a critical factor in our shared journey to achieve gender partnership and gender equity. I'm grateful to the women in my life who welcomed, fostered, and mentored my growth--enabling me to be a better leader, father, spouse, and friend. Ray Arata's book is a helpful guide for how men can be better sponsors and advocates for women."--Mike Kaufmann, CEO of Cardinal Health
