Introspection Into Action: Becoming an Ally in a Time of Racial Unrest

Introspection Into Action: Becoming an Ally in a Time of Racial Unrest

On Demand

Duration: 1 hour

About the Webinar

Many companies and organizational leaders are taking a public position against racial injustice. As talent managers and colleagues, we may wish to become an ally in this struggle. But what does that really mean?

Becoming an ally doesn’t start or end in the workplace. Creating a truly inclusive environment begins with reflection on our own privileges and biases. It also involves intentional actions, which include promoting practices that create psychological safety and leveraging our advantages to advocate in partnership with others.

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • What it means — and doesn’t mean — to be an ally,
  • The connection between leadership and allyship, and
  • Immediate actions you can take towards becoming an ally and creating an inclusive environment.

We can partner with you to create custom leadership solutions to shift mindsets, behaviors, and practices toward more equitable, diverse, and inclusive teams and organizations. Learn more about how our EDI practice can help you fulfill your commitment to becoming an ally.
