We all have the capacity and the responsibility to be an ally – to advocate for others when we recognize disparities between how things are and how they should be.
It’s even more important to help to close those gaps in the workplace, in our local communities and anywhere we encounter inequity.
Great allyship can occur when people use their privilege to advocate in both big public moments when the world is watching, as well as in small, private moments behind closed doors.
A great ally can change a life or can even save a life. All it takes is courage.
