Michele Bendekovic, the firm’s Director of Diversity & Inclusion, authored an article examining the role that allies play in the fight to end discrimination, racial and social injustice. Michele points out a number of characteristics and behaviors of allies, such as:

  • Building relationships and aligning yourself with those who are not like you.
  • Not being silent when witnessing bias and discrimination.
  • Understanding the impact of privilege on his or her own life.

Michele challenges readers and notes that “being an ally is a process of continual self-examination, learning and listening.”

The full article, “Are You Ready to Be An Ally?” was published in the August 2020 issue of ManageHR magazine and is available online.
