The word ‘ally’ is tossed around a lot, particularly when talking about diversity and challenging situations at work. We suggest that people seek out allies, whether in relation to handling a difficult situation at work, getting your ideas heard in meetings, or having support as an underrepresented minority. However, what exactly is an ally? What does it mean to be an ally, and how should someone signal their commitment to this role? Is it enough to simply self-identify as an ally, or are there proactive ways to embody this role? We’ll bring together experts in diversity and inclusion to discuss all of these questions, and offer some thoughts on best practices around being an ally.
