Leadership and Business Roadmap – June 2023
“YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE GAY TO BE A SUPPORTER—YOU JUST HAVE TO BE A HUMAN.”
WELCOME TO JUNE!
Happy Pride Month, everyone! We celebrate Pride each year with various events, including Pride parades and marches, to show support and foster a wider acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community. But our advocacy can’t end there. Pride Month lasts only 30 days, while true allyship requires a commitment that extends far beyond one month out of the year. Allies play a crucial role in promoting inclusivity, acceptance, and equality for LGBTQ+ individuals.
Are you interested in becoming an ally or improving your existing allyship? Skillsoft’s Head of Content for the Leadership and Business portfolio, Anju Choudhary offers some practical advice in her article, “How to Be an Ally: 10 Actionable Tips.”
Remember, being an ally is an ongoing commitment. Keep learning, listening, and challenging yourself to be supportive and inclusive. Your support can make a substantial difference in creating a more inclusive and accepting world for everyone in the LGBTQ+ community.
For more resources on allyship be sure to check out this month’s Pride bookshelf. Additionally, as you explore our library of leadership and business courses, books, audiobooks, and summaries, I encourage you to consider how you can leverage them in your learning solutions.
Skillsoft Leadership Development Program (SLDP) powered by MIT Sloan Management Review (MIT SMR) brings a powerful combination of leading-edge learning resources, world-renowned thought leadership, proven instructional design, and an engaging learner experience in a single online platform.
In the next 2 months, the Leadership and Business content team is launching 3 new SLDP courses designed to provide leaders with the tools they need to lead their teams through times of change with grace and ease, while helping keep themselves healthy.
