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

In recent years, many companies and organizations have been taking public positions against racial injustice. Corporate statements about diversity & inclusion are a good start, but ongoing conversations and actions connected to those commitments are needed for lasting change.

In the meantime, as individual talent managers, leaders, and colleagues, we may be looking for ways to serve as an ally to others. But what does becoming an ally 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 listening closely to others’ experiences and taking intentional actions, which include promoting practices that create psychological safety for everyone, and leveraging our advantages to advocate for, and in partnership with, others.

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar you’ll learn:

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

We can help you fulfill your commitment to becoming an ally. Learn more about how our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) practice and solutions shifts mindsets, behaviors, and practices toward more equitable, diverse, and inclusive teams and organizations.
