True Allyship: Be a Better Ally All the Time, Every Day — Supported by WGU

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
True Allyship is not defined by intent, but by impact. The question to ask yourself is: How do I ensure that I'm having the impact of an ally? Join us for a lively discussion about this leading question as we dive into the concept of privilege, our unconscious biases, and why intent can only go so far. Our panelists will share their experiences, the barriers they've faced and overcome while imparting valuable advice on how you can act with impact as an ally every day, in the workplace and beyond.

I believe that people thrive in a culture where they feel that they can contribute, belong and form meaningful relationships. Culture is the commodity for growth and innovation. The challenge is to create an every day culture that is inclusive, transparent and authentic.
