Today, workplace allyship is not a “nice to have”, it must be a priority to build a culture of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Teams succeed when they are inclusive and diverse and allyship is more vital today than ever before.
Many find themselves asking…
“How can I become an ally to my colleagues?” or “How can I be a better ally and help marginalized groups in the workplace?”
According to a Change Catalyst study, 50% of women and 53% of LGBTQIA+ professionals report they are more likely to stay at their current job when they have allies at work. The research also shows that employees who had 2 or more allies were nearly twice as likely to be satisfied with their job, satisfied with their workplace culture, and feel like they belong in the organization.
