Key messages from Better Allies
You don’t have to be a leader or have the words “Diversity,” “Inclusion,” or “Belonging” on your business card to make a difference. There are everyday actions we all can take to create more inclusive workplaces. There are myriad ways we can be allies.
Read Better Allies to identify the actions you will take to level up your ally skills.
Being an ally is a journey that starts with a single step. In Better Allies, your first step will be to take stock of your privilege and then get curious about your coworkers’ experiences. You’ll also learn about the straightforward steps you can take to be more inclusive, while getting comfortable with making mistakes. Last but not least, you’ll be inspired to keep learning.
In Better Allies, you’ll also learn about everyday acts of sponsorship that open career doors for colleagues from underrepresented groups. Things like speaking their name when they aren’t around, endorsing them publicly, inviting them to high-profile meetings, sharing their career goals with decision-makers, and recommending them for stretch assignments and speaking opportunities.
