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.
