ABOUT THIS COURSE
Being an ally means acknowledging your privilege and using it to advocate on behalf of people from less-privileged, underrepresented communities. Allies educate themselves, to make sure they aren’t discriminating against others or contributing to hostile environments. They’re also willing to amplify the voices of colleagues who directly experience discrimination. It’s not about feeling bad about making mistakes. But it is about committing to acknowledging those mistakes, so real, sustainable change can happen.
Understanding what allyship is and how to be a good ally will help you contribute to a workplace that creates inclusive teams in which diversity is championed. It can feel uncomfortable to acknowledge privilege and mistakes. But you can use yours to support your colleagues and work towards an equitable workplace for everyone.
