How To Be An Ally

“I have found in working with hundreds of leaders, everyone has a story of when they have felt a high level of inclusion, and when they have felt on the outside. Every single leader can tell you a story when they have been excluded, or the other. And by getting them to connect to those stories, they begin to appreciate what some people must feel every single day coming to work. Be an ally to others, get educated in the experience of others, get to know someone who is different from you, and then advocate on their behalf. And if it’s someone of a different race, of a different sexual orientation, better understanding women’s issues in the workplace: education, empathy, and advocacy. Those are the three major pieces that we should all be focused on.”
