This is what I think about…the spectrum of White allyship

  1. Start your race journey and think about why you think the way you do.
  2. Hold Race Table Talks with employees from your old and current jobs.
  3. Listen to the stories of African Americans in the workplace.
  4. Read articles like this and aligned ones.
  1. Speak to your Black or African American co-worker about their experience. Ask what can you do to support them or the ERG/Affinity Group.
  2. Speak up to your manager and Human Resources about DEIB change you want to see. Ask for specific changes and to see data points. Follow up.
  3. Speak to your CEO about whether the values align to DEIB and racial equity. It works. I did.
  1. Shout out your Black colleagues for their work. Steer clear of microaggressions and racism.
  2. Shout out managers and Directors who take antiracist actions. On the other end, hold accountable conversations with others and report those who fail to manage or lead equitably.
  3. Get on the agenda and shout out the work that aligns to DEIB goals. Call out gaps that do not.
