STRIVE TO BE AN ALLY FOR DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

No organization has diversity and inclusion figured out.  If you or your organization is curious about what to say or do right now, you are not alone.

That is because tradtional diversity training does not work.  The one size fits all or check the box approaches never worked, in fact.  Some traditional diversity training has actually caused a backlash affect and contributed to negative outcomes.  That is because people need an intentional set of experiences on diversity and inclusion to change their beliefs and for those beliefs to be embedded in the workplace culture.  It is not done in a one-time learning vacuum.

We need all people included in the conversation on diversity and inclusion.  We are stronger together as allies.

WHAT IS AN ALLY?

Now is the time for allies.  Allies are people that stand with those that are underrepresented by race, gender, sexual orientation, abilities or other dimensions of diversity.  They often are well-intentioned, yet do not know what to say or do to demonstrate they are allies.

WHY DO ALLIES MATTER?

Those in the majority groups – whites, cis-gendered, men, able-bodied – can best support diversity and inclusion because of their power and privilege.  This means all allies matter now more than ever to accelerate positive change.  Julie provides the business case and the human case for allyship and a historical perspective on the systems of privilege that hold underrepresented people back.

WHAT DO ALLIES DO?

Allies often speak up with those that underrepresented and help everyone be seen, heard, and belong in the workplace.  They amplify other’s voices and listen and learn.  They may be coaches, mentors, advocates, sponsors, or challengers.  Julie shares five key roles and actions allies can take to lead like an ally on race.  All participants leave with a tangible commitment to take action on right away.

Being an ally is a journey, and you do not have to do it alone. 

At Next Pivot Point, we believe in the power of allies.  There has never been a better time to lead like an ally and be there for others.
