Make 2020 the Year of the Ally

From my 20 years of experience working with organizations striving to attract and engage diverse talent, and my own experience as leader in Corporate America, I have come to accept that no organization is where they want to be with diversity.

For this reason, I developed a 12-month virtual program that takes no more than an hour a month to learn how to lead like an ally.  Collaboratively, leaders will canvas key skill areas with a weekly video and comprehensive workbook with actionable exercises that fit into their already active schedules.  Some frequently asked questions…

What is it, you ask?
Lead Like an Ally a 12-month virtual program targeted at managers and all employees inside organizations that value diversity and inclusion, yet lack the tools and time to dedicate to the cultural shifts necessary for inclusion.
Why is it needed?
Managers and all employees alike struggle with how to talk about diversity and inclusion, and often shut down in candid conversations.  Senior leadership and newer employees are often well-versed and the murky middle of the organization is silent.  They need actionable, intentional steps to be inclusive and lead like an ally.
How does it work?
Each week, learners get a new 5-minute video with a lesson and workbook activity.  The 12 monthly modules canvas key behaviors of inclusive leaders from self-awareness, self-management, knowing your ally role, comfort with discomfort, candid conversations, space for others, diversity storytelling, unconscious bias with deep dives into gender, race, and sexual orientation, concluding with sustainable systems for positive change.  Their progress is tracked in the system, and they are able to learn inclusive leadership behaviors collaboratively with their peers and openly in our discussion boards.  Pricing is tiered based on number of learners and there is unlimited access for the full year and includes a robust workbook to take action right away.  Content may be customized and co-branded as well.


What are you doing to embed diversity, equality, and inclusion throughout your organization? Talking about it is not enough. We have to practice these skills to influence real behavior shifts.

Today’s middle manager has many competing priorities vying for their time.  While many want to lead inclusively, they do not have the tools or time to practice it.  They often feel excluded in diversity initiatives, especially if they are cisgender white males.  I believe we have an opportunity for these managers to be allies for those that are underrepresented.  Being an ally takes time and leaders do not have to learn to be inclusive on their own.
