Allyship is an important component of helping create greater equity and understanding.
Organizations have an opportunity to take action by investing in and engaging as allies in matters relating to race. Demonstrating care and being curious, driving collaboration and using critical thinking courageously fosters understanding, deepens learning and influences skeptics.
People who think of themselves as allies benefit because they have more frequent and effective conversations with others. This has very important social, institutional and organizational impact.
Our ally priorities list was designed in response to employee network/resource group member requests and encourages allies to take a clear-eyed look at the energy and activities that comprise their anti-racism practices.
