Making change as an Ally

I’ve previously been scared to speak up in situations where I could have made change, likely from fear of saying the wrong thing and worsening the situation. But if we never take action, how can we make change?

In todays workplaces, there are still huge issues with diversity & inclusivity. Whilst you may not notice it in your workplace, underrepresented groups are faced with difficulties and feelings that those with privilege are likely to have never encountered. But this doesn’t, and shouldn’t, have to be the way – being an ally allows us to amplify the voices of the underrepresented and make change happen. And in this talk, I’d to share with you some of my learnings around how we can become allies for these groups and make improvements not only in our place of work, but in our every day lives.
