Embracing Allyship

La'Wana Harris

Take your diversity, equity, and inclusion commitment to the next level.

Dr. King once said, "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." Today, as we face a time of widespread unrest and an ongoing fight for social justice, many people that consider themselves friends of marginalized groups are asking, “What can I do?” A good place to start is to be willing to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. Meaningful progress requires a deep understanding of, and commitment to thoughtful allyship.

In the second of our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) Leadercamp series, we look at what it means to be an ally, and why allyship is so important in the continued journey toward real diversity, true equity, and meaningful inclusion.

In an interactive and thought-provoking hour, "Embracing Allyship" will provide expert guidance to help you take the next step. You'll have the information and insight you need to become a thoughtful and productive ally for underrepresented groups in your workplace and community.

Our world-class inclusion coach will:

  • Walk you through the stages from DEI Actor to Ally to Accomplice.
  • Help you distinguish between performative allyship and thoughtful allyship.
  • Encourage you to assess your current assumptions and behavior and give you confidence to make changes.
  • Provide compelling samples of allyship in action.
  • Supply lists of Do's and Don'ts that you can share with others.
  • Point you to additional valuable resources and opportunities for learning.

Most importantly, this Leadercamp will illuminate how embracing your role as an ally can help you achieve significant and lasting change — as an individual, a team member, and a leader in your organization.
