When this survey asks are there ways....you [will] engage with other male members of your community the surveyers are hoping (perhaps naively) for more than the Macmillan Dictionary meaning:

to make an effort to understand and deal with someone...

The survey is asking if respondent will become a missionary among other males for non-gender based discrimination.

It is asking (but of course it can't do it in French) if the respondent will become engagé. Merriam-Webster

The French have used "engagé" since the 19th century to describe socially or politically active people..... By 1946, English speakers had adopted the word for their own politically relevant writing or art, and within a short time "engagé" was being used generally for any passionate commitment to a cause.
